12th Annual Veterans Appreciation Night 2019

Veterans Appreciation Night at Paints Stadium 2019

The parched lawns and gummy asphalt weren’t enough to keep the over 5,000 attendees away. What really sets this event apart from most Veteran centric events is family.

The Chillicothe VA celebrated its 12th Annual Veterans Appreciation Night on a hot and sunny Saturday on June 29. The parched lawns and gummy asphalt weren’t enough to keep the over 5,000 attendees away. What really sets this event apart from most Veteran centric events is family.    
  
     Veteran after Veteran brought their spouse, kids and grandkids in for games, prizes, hotdogs and a baseball game. The fact they were willing to brave the sun and heat to attend this celebration shows that this event has become part of their summer experience. Each year the celebration consists of information booths from community vendors and VA staff providing information about programs and services, games, face painting, military displays, a complimentary dinner and free admission to the Paints baseball game. Veterans also receive a free t-shirt while supplies last. All-in-all, it’s a great evening for the whole family.

          This event wouldn’t be possible without all the hard work and planning of VA staff, Chillicothe Paints and Veteran organization partners. They make a personal investment of time and attention to make this celebration better each year. The smiles and genuine appreciation of our Veterans makes all that effort worth it and keeps us striving to make next year even better.
