"The unsung heroes, these kids have sacrificed as much as anyone - having to grow up with a mom or dad (or both) sent to the warzone one to five times in the past nine years," said Ken Swarner, co-owner. "These kids pack up and move to new towns, having to say good-bye to old friends, challenged to make new ones at the next duty station."
Experienced in throwing support parties, Swarner said the event will be robust and kid-friendly.
"We are going to throw them a huge "Thank You" party November 12 - it's our Thanksgiving Message to the entire community - our chance to say Thank You to the thousands of military kids living in our community."
Swarner invites local business and support organizations to contact him if they'd like to be involved. Reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
