On Monday May 20, they had their fourth annual open house where they offered free ice cream, t-shirts, 3×5 nylon American flags, and other fun swag. An estimated 170 people attended, which was extremely successful. June they have a few events lined up, on the second and fourth Thursday of the month they will host their Brew and Bull at 9 am in the office where they will offer donuts and coffee. They will also be hosting their Annual Veteran Picnic over at Ariel Foundation Park, date is yet to be determined. Finally, they have brought back in house counseling with retired army chaplain Dawn Wilson.
