Veterans Tribute USO Show
November 15, 2014 - 6:00pm
New Hope Presbyterian Church
3737 New Hope Way, Castle Rock, CO 80109
Free of charge
We are inviting all veterans and military personnel in the Castle Rock area to be our guests at a USO SHOW in their honor. Entertainment includes the Pink Champagne trio (who will be filling in for The Andrew Sisters) with music from the WWII era, plus military stories and movie trivia. Please invite any veteran or military person you know to attend - and encourage them to wear their uniforms if they like. Snacks and dessert will be provided.
The Volunteers of America Veteran Service Center dream is for getting Colorado Veterans better assistance, faster. Right now, Veterans are struggling with the distance between services scattered across the city. But with our planned building at 1247 Santa Fe, we would create one building that any Veteran can visit to get everything from education, to employment help, to clothing, counseling, and legal assistance.
We believe Veterans deserve the best care there is, but we need your help to give it. We have a January 1 deadline to raise $2 Million to fund the center. Please consider giving, and helping us give back to the people who have done so much for us. Let’s build a better life for veterans together.

There will be a Memorial Service at Ft Logan National Cemetery on the 2nd Saturday of each month for the Veteran's buried in the previous month who either had no family or friends to attend their service, or who were unable to be given Military Honors at their service. The service will be held at Area 'A' at 1100 (11:00 am).
