OPERATION FUN – Pierce County’s 1st ANNUAL FREE VETERANS APPRECIATON EVENT
UNIVERSITY PLACE, WA, OCTOBER 1, 2012:
A community based event team of veterans and civilians will create Pierce County’s largest Veteran Appreciation Event, Operation Fun. This day of fun takes place in the parking lot of the Narrows Plaza Bowl, 2200 Mildred St W, University Place, WA on Saturday Nov 3rd from 10-4. It is free to our Veterans, Service Members and their families in support of the mission to End Veteran Suicide.
This event will feature fun activities for all ages, entertainment, games, bouncers, displays, food for purchase, resources and great information. It is a day to provide free fun and information on the services and benefits available to Service Members, Veterans and their families.
“This is an opportunity for the community to join forces to honor all Veterans (Active Duty and Past Duty) for their sacrifice and to welcome them home. If we all do a little it adds up to a lot and will make a difference in their lives”, said Rod Wittmier the event lead. Mr. Wittmier, also an Army Veteran, is the founder and Program Director of the National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide, a program of the Veterans Family Fund of America. Mr. Wittmier also added that “event team members are made up of veterans and civilians, individuals and business owners. Guests will receive a passport that once it’s stamped by visiting vendor booths, will allow their family to enjoy free bowling, roller skating, movie passes, Odyssey passes, cotton candy, popcorn, $1 ice cream cones at DQ, $15 discount at Jiffy Lube and other great activities and fun!
Civilians can purchase a wrist band to enjoy the festivities and fun for a $10 donation.
The Veterans Family Fund of America is the non-profit born from the leadership of the WA State Department of Veterans Affairs. The VFFA fills the gap between the federal VA and the state programs for our Veterans and their families.
