Yellow Ribbon Fund’s Family Fun Weekend

Patriot Point hosted Yellow Ribbon Fund’s Family Fun Weekend earlier this month, with 15 military families coming to our peaceful retreat. In all, 24 adults and 34 kids visited Patriot Point!

The kids held a slumber party in the gym and enjoyed a great weekend with a bounce house, water slides and face painting, with plenty of popcorn and snow cones. The adults were able to hit the water and swim, kayak, paddleboard and canoe, while there was volleyball and cornhole on land. Thanks to Talisman Therapeutic Riding for bringing their horses Spot and Ralph to Patriot Point!

Everyone enjoyed a nighttime bonfire. Thank you to Emily’s Produce for providing dinner and breakfast and to our volunteers, Sharon Lowery, Brice Brummell, Taylor Mitchell and Sherry Mitchell.
