Following the breakfast, guests will enjoy a flag raising ceremony and honor guard at 11:30 a.m. To kick off the afternoon celebrations, all retired or active military vets are invited to participate in the freedom photo at 12:00 p.m. Participants are encouraged to wear their uniform, colors and patches. After the freedom photo, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., guests will enjoy live music, additional commemorative photos etc., vendors and refreshments. All freedom photo participants will receive a complimentary copy of the photo.
The public is welcome to join in on the fun and while the event is free, donations will be accepted and all proceeds will go to benefit the American Fallen Soldiers Project.
