Held at Calvary Community Church on Thursday, August 30 at 7:30pm, the Battle for Veterans Evening of Honor will feature community veterans and student athletes as the guests of honor. Wounded Veteran Mr. Stu Weber will be the keynote speaker for the evening. Guests will also enjoy special entertainment and refreshments served in the lobby from 6-7pm.
