Veteran’s Day Celebration

November 12, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Help us honor our local Veteran’s by making a wheelchair blanket that will be donated to the Buffalo VA Hospital and make a card for a local troop currently deployed in the Middle East. All active duty and retired military personnel play for free today.

The activities run from 11:00-2:00. The museum is open from 10:00-5:00.

*Cub Scouts to sing patriotic songs in uniform
*Members of the armed forces will be present to share their stories as well as what it means to be a Veteran
*Cards to mail to an actively deployed unit in Baghdad (or they can be kept if the child is giving it to their own Veteran)
*Collection of toiletries to mail to a deployed unit in Baghdad

This event is presented by Geico.
