Wow! This year was fabulous, wasn’t it? We had so many helpers from the community who also see the importance of honoring our HEROES! From the precious Girl Scouts who gave our Veterans awesome-sized candy bags to our those who served food and covered the ground work of a huge dinner; where would we be without help? Everyone who labored over this dinner, we thank you for joining us in the mission!
To all of our Veterans who attended, we hope you felt honored and appreciated! We hope you will consider Heroes Night Out your new HOME for next Thanksgiving! Thank you to those who served and have served!!! We love you!!!
