Last Fling will host ‘Support our Troops Day’ on Sept. 3

-

The Naperville  Jaycees again will host Support Our Troops Day on Labor Day during Last Fling, the final day of the four-day family festival that marks the end of summer.

All  members of the Judd Kendall VFW Post 3873, American Legion Post 43 and members of OSOT-America who have served are invited to Support Our Troops Day beginning at noon, Mon., Sept. 3, along Rotary Hill, following the Last Fling Labor Day Parade.  Traditionally, veterans organizations have been well-represented with the nation’s colors as an entry in the Naperville Jaycees  Labor Day Parade.

The free afternoon event for veterans and active military will be hosted in the Sponsors Tent which is on the left side of Rotary Hill, looking toward the live entertainment Belgio’s Catering Main Stage.

Food and refreshments will be provided in the Sponsors Tent.

Live on stage,  Out of Hours will perform at 1PM, followed by Seventh Heaven at 3PM.

Admission to Rotary Hill on Labor Day is free of charge.  The public is welcome to help fill the park. Refreshments and beverages will be available for purchase from vendors on Rotary Hill.

“We owe our Veterans everything that we enjoy about our freedom everyday… ”  said Marty Walker, one of the organizers. “In the words of Naperville’s very own, Commander Dan Shanower, ‘Freedom isn’t free.’ We need to remember those words every time we are in the presence of our military family. God bless these brave men and women who gave us their time and lives.”

Entry to other live  concerts,  Aug. 31-Sept. 2, are with admission tickets, available in advance via (630) 637-7469, 10AM-6PM  Mon-Fri,  or online at www.lastflingtickets.com.
