3rd Annual 2017 Veteran’s Celebration
Thrivent Financial’s Thrivent Community-Mountain Plains and Adamson Life Celebration Home are excited to announce their 3rd Annual 2017 Veteran’s Celebration. To kick off Veteran’s Week in northern Colorado, “Game Day for Veterans” will be held Sunday, November 5, 2017 from 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM at the Embassy Suites Loveland. In addition to a program honoring all veterans at 12:30 pm, a live band, family activities (such as face painting, balloon tying, and magician), a military tank and other vehicles, and a life size flight simulator will add to the festivities. An expanded resource fair featuring 47 different agencies who all serve veterans in various capacities will be available to all in attendance. The Chappelow Arts Magnet School choir will provide patriotic songs and help recognize and thank our veterans. Remember and Honor is also helping to plan and coordinate our event. Tailgate food will be available during the celebration for all to enjoy. Our event will be free for everyone attending and a family friendly event is in store for all to enjoy.
Last year, our 2nd annual Veteran’s event and resource fair attracted 500 guests, including 175 veterans and their families. That event also brought together 34 different agencies that provided services to and for veterans. Our event was rated highly by the veterans and their families who attended, as well as by the resource fair participants. A picture collage of our 2016 event is attached.
