We will meet on December 1st from 11am to 5pm at Lago Vista Circle in Land O’Lakes Florida to place 200 flag posts, pitch tents, etc. Then return on December 2nd at 7am to 3pm to setup 200 chairs, tables, and coolers prior to the ceremony then post ceremony assist with preparing lunch for approximately 300-500 guests, then clean up, putting away tables, chairs, flags and flag posts.

This home has been built for Army Master Sergeant George Vera and his family. It has been designed and equipped to accommodate his wheelchair and special needs. This will be their first home so any donations local businesses can offer to help make their house a home, will be much appreciated.
