Armed Forces Day Event
The event will be held on 18 May (Armed Forces Day) and will kick off with a 5k run with several hundred participants starting at 0730. After the conclusion of the run, participants will gather for breakfast and beverages in the center garden/courtyard for an awards ceremony for run winners. This will be followed by live music and the celebration of Armed Forces Day featuring various vendors, exhibits, a 21+ tent, prizes, demos, and games (space for approximately 40 booths). There will also be local leaders from Brevard county in attendance. We will be doing a silent auction and one vendor is even looking to give away a free wedding dress to a military bride to be. Please
This event is a DoD wide endeavor and will feature recruiting booths and displays throughout the large shopping area. All proceeds will go back to the Rescue Special Functions (out of the 920th at Patrick) and the Military Affairs Council which supports all 5 services. All money goes back to our families going through hard times or illnesses and also support our family day that we host annually and other morale events. Last year some funds went towards paying plane and hotel costs for a spouse whose husband had to have emergency surgery while in training in Arizona. Funds also went towards a Caisson for the funeral of the previous Operations Group Commander who was killed in the area while riding his bike.
