American Heroes Day 2019

Our annual Veterans Appreciation Day has been scheduled! The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation is proud to host this event to honor the men and women who have bravely served our country. This is our way to say thank you and provide veterans with a day of outdoor fun and camaraderie. This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, August 23, 2019. Hours will be 11AM – 7PM. There is no fee for veterans to attend. Pre-registration is required since we have a limited amount of space available.

Activities will be led by industry experts. This action-packed day will consist of fishing, archery, skeet and target shooting, and perhaps a game or two of corn hole. Lunch and dinner will be provided. Then, of course, there will be prizes awarded for the best performers in the competitions, along with some random drawings for other prizes.  Each veteran will receive a gift bag filled with items to take home. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

We are so excited about this year’s event. We wish that we could accommodate extended family members, but are unable to due to logistics. This is a casual day in a location off the beaten path.

We would love to sign up more sponsors to help us make this day even greater. If you want to be a part of this event that honors military service, contact us at 434-476-7038.
