Veterans organizations hosts picnic Sunday

By Tyler Hemstreet on August 18, 2010

VetsMeetVets, a local organization that works to connect recent veterans with more seasoned veterans and the services of their local area, hosts a picnic from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the American Lake picnic area.    

The event is open to all active duty and past duty veterans and their families.

Guests are asked to bring a prepackaged food item because there is no electricity at the picnic area to keep food hot. Organizers are also encouraging guests to bring lawn chairs, lawn games and musical instruments.

The VA hospital at American Lake is located at 9600 Veterans Dr., Lakewood.
