A day to appreciate military

in Community by

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce and local business community will celebrate the area’s military for their commitment to the defense of the United States and their peacekeeping efforts around the globe. The Beaufort Regional Chamber’s annual Military Appreciation Day will be held Saturday, September 10 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Laurel Bay in Beaufort. All active, reserved, retired military and their families are invited.
Military Appreciation Day is a free event and open for all to attend.  This event gives community leaders, as well as the public, the opportunity to honor and thank our local military and families.  Military Appreciation Day is made possible by our sponsors; Hargray, Marine Corps Community Services and Atlantic Marine Corps Communities, along with a host of many other regional businesses.  Local military and their families will be treated to a fun-filled day with children and adult activities including face painting, carnival games, music, free food and drinks from local vendors.
The Beaufort Regional Chamber has hosted Military Appreciation Day for many years as one of several ways it supports the area’s military. A number of elected officials, the Beaufort Regional Chamber’s Military Enhancement Committee and members of the board of directors will also be present.
