The All American Patriot Association will host its Patriotic and Veterans Day celebration on March 20 at 4480 Doc Bennett Road in Fayetteville. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. with the opening ceremony starting at noon.
There is a $5 entrance fee.
The event was originally scheduled to be held in conjunction with Veterans Day last November, but was postponed due to COVID-10 restrictions.
The outdoor event will offer a variety of food vendors, entertainment from live bands, raffles, a historic Constitution contest, and plenty of activities for the kids. There will be an all veterans jump team drop-in, as well as guest speakers. This will be a fun-filled day showing support for our veterans, active duty military and their families.
The AAPA is a non-profit organization that was founded with a focus on teaching the histories of the American flag, Pledge, National Anthem and the Declaration of Independence. Their goal as an organization is to educate Americans on the importance of history within our country.
AAPA founder Franco Webb said, “History is so in-depth and there is a history in Fayetteville that a lot of people do not know about.” He added that there is a lot of history within the Declaration and the Pledge that some schools do not teach, and his non-profit organization aims to help teach this content to students. The AAPA also provides American flags and teaches proper flag etiquette.
This Patriotic Day Celebration will help the AAPA organization raise money for an upcoming Suicide Prevention and Deployment team. This program was created to help those facing suicidal thoughts or tendencies to reach out to real people and actually have a unit deploy to their location and help them through what it is they are going through. This is made possible through an app that when the number is called it locks in the person’s location using GPS. The number is 844-NEED-YOU.
