The Indiana Patriot Guard riders will be collecting donations for care boxes for soldiers overseas. They are looking for non-perishable food items like Ramen noodles, cookies, beef jerky and other snacks, plus baby wipes and socks. If you don’t know what may be needed, money will be collected and the members will purchase items. Your money can also be used to help ship the boxes overseas. If you know of a soldier that could benefit from this organization, give them the address and they can receive a care package.
The Army rock wall will be an all-weekend activity as well as the mobile reptile zoo, arts and crafts vendors, the Hamlet Rendezvous camps, and recognition of our local military heroes.
The car show cruise will step off at 3 p.m. ET today down the Yellowstone Trail. The caravan will travel to Donaldson and return to the Starke County Fairgrounds. The tractor drive-in is at 4 p.m. and the adult tricycle rodeo is at 4:30 p.m.
Music will be featured all weekend including entertainment by the Dirt Cheap band and the Smithers Jammers. The parade is tomorrow at 2 p.m. which will start on Starke Street and move on to Railroad Street and Division Street.
