A local Sam’s Club will honor military veterans and community heroes during a military appreciation event June 27th. Click to hear Community Leader for Sam’s Club.

The Northland Liberty Sam’s Club will host the event to honor any member of the military, police and fire. Community Leader Nancy Bishop says community support is important for veterans and their families.

Bishop says the event is open to the public to come show support and speak with veterans and their families. She encourages any area residents to attend.

The special event will recognize those who risk their lives to protect others. Last year’s appreciation event saw multiple World War II veterans and an outpouring of community support.

Bishop says often military members don’t understand the impact they’ve had on other’s lives. She says it’s important to take the time to show our appreciation and understand their sacrifice.

The Military Appreciation Event at the Northland Liberty Sam’s Club will be Saturday, June 27th at 8 a.m.
