Event set for May 30 at Veterans Memorial Park
What’s this event all about?
Phelps for the Fort and the Fort Leonard Wood Missouri Chapter of the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) will hold their annual barbecue from 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, May 30, at the Rolla Veterans Memorial Park on Southview Drive. This is a change in location from last year.
Why should you go?
The general public, especially service members and families at Fort Leonard Wood are invited. “The annual barbecue is an opportunity for us to gather as communities and thank our military members and families for all they do to provide the freedoms we enjoy,” a flier about the event states.
The “Rough Riders” from the Fort Leonard Wood 399th Army Band will provide rock music from 6-7:30 p.m. The barbecue, which will consist of barbecue pork steak, two sides and a choice of drink, will be served starting at 6 p.m.
