Event Details

This summer, Veterans, their families and friends from all over the nation, will again meet on the 3rd weekend of July. We will once again be entertained with music by live bands. There will be auctions, opportunities to win, kids' entertainment tent, U.S.O. style show, food, drink and other vendors. The auctions and opportunities to win are used to fund the reunion's expenses and prepare for the following year. Veterans who are returning from current conflicts never pass up the opportunity to welcome a brother and sister home. Please let them know about our Reunion.

All veterans are welcome, any time, or any conflict.

There will be FREE Lake access Fee for all prior and active and retired military with accepted military or Veteran's Administration ID or DD-214 or other proof of service. Many thanks to the KDWPT for their help and for allowing the veterans to enjoy this benefit.
