Guests will sit on the Patriot Course fairway and enjoy the lush green lawn. A new food offering this year from the food truck will be chef’s pulled pork sandwiches. The event is complimentary and families are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets.

In the spirit of the holiday we will have hand-painted American flags for guests to sign. The flags will be sent overseas to our troops through the Blue Star Moms of the Southwest Valley. These notes of hope, encouragement, and thanks go a long way when they are so far away.
