If you have a loved one who has served, please fill out this form so we can honor them:

In accordance with our new safety protocols, we ask that you pre-register to attend the program here: --> VETERAN'S DAY PROGRAM SIGN UP. We also ask that you have your ID with you in order to gain access. Guests will be able to access the gym beginning at 2:30. THIS FORM WILL STOP TAKING SUBMISSIONS at 4 pm on Wednesday. You will still be able to attend, but it will take additional time to check into the office, so pre-registration is encouraged.
