Charlevoix Community Celebrates Veterans

Hospice of Northwest Michigan debuted their first Active Military and Veteran’s Appreciation Event.

Saturday afternoon people in Charlevoix came together at the Flight Deck Bar and Grill to thank veterans, and active military servicemen and women for their service.

Community members celebrated by diving in to a barbeque chicken luncheon.

They also got discounted bowling, free pool, and card games.

One of the event hosts, Amy Wieland, says she wanted to start the event to celebrate veterans, because they are under identified in the community.

Visitors donated 10 dollars to get into the event.

All the proceeds went to the ‘We Honor Veterans Program.’
