Thanksgiving at The Retreat 2017
SOWW hosted another fantastic Thanksgiving Event at Warrior Retreat on November 19th, 2017. Our event started out Saturday, November 18th with the tremendous community support of over 100 volunteers inside and outside Warrior Retreat. Volunteers raked and cleaned up the grounds, turkeys were smoked on the Green Eggs, and Christmas decorations were taken down and prepped for the transition from Thanksgiving to the Christmas season. It was a truly heartwarming experience to see so many dedicated volunteers pull together to provide a wonderful experience and dinner for our Warriors and their families.
The Event on Sunday was even more amazing. We hosted nearly 100 warriors and their family to a delicious Thanksgiving dinner and tribute to America and what makes our nation great. Chef Ken Gardner of KB Culinary outdid himself with the menu and the guests truly enjoyed the delicious food that the many volunteer cooks and SOWW prepared. The message to the Warriors that day was again clear, “Thank you so much for your service. Our entire community is behind you.”
