"Hardworking Heroes" Is a gathering of service men and women and their
Vehicles 8am to 1pm, Thursday, 9/22 on the lawn in East Park, downtown Charlevoix.
Its a Field Trip day for the Schools and a chance for the public to 'Touch the Truck' and 'Shake a Hand' of a Hardworking Hero! The Farmers Market will host a real 'Hum-V' from the National Guard / Camp Grayling, the Sheriff's K-9 team working demonstrations, a Police Vehicle, a Fire Truck, an Ambulance, a US Coast Guard boat and others.
We hope to have plenty of local Veterans onsite! They could supply a booth with info, or wear uniform clothing to shows they've served. It would be nice to have thechildren and public shake their hands, etc.
Please feel welcome to attend any or all of this special morning, we would be honored with your presence. The national anthem will be played with color guard attendance at a time to be determined.
