3rd Annual We Salute Our Heroes Festival
We are excited to announce the date of our annual We Salute Our Heroes festival on Saturday, September 8th from 11-2PM! This will be the 3rd year that we have had the privilege to create this special day for our well-deserving military and veterans. Sacrifice and honor are not new words to these individuals and this is a day that we have reserved to give our time and resources to honor our local heroes and their family for the ultimate sacrifice that they have made for all of us!
“Tom Mooningham, HMC (FMF) USN RETIRED – I wish to express my appreciation for a wonderful day at We Salute Our Heroes day today. Your patriotism and genuine caring for veterans was evident at every level of the day, from the activities, food, displays, comradeship shown by the staff was a true relief from the turmoil our country is facing today. As a sailor and serving with the Marine Corps for 24 years the highest honor one can give is ‘WELL DONE’, you, your staff, and all the groups volunteering their time and efforts to make this day a successful one truly earned a ‘WELL DONE’. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOLD BLESS AMERICA.”
