Some of the festivities will include a Family BBQ and breakfast, memorabilia displays, a Veterans’ Memorial Dinner, golf tournament, darts, and a re-dedication of the Hall.

All of the activities are designed to show support for our veterans and highlight the Hall as a place for the larger community and its importance to Strathmore and surrounding areas.
