Gold Star Families
One of our most important activities each year is working with and honoring the Gold Star Families living in the west Florida area. We have hosted an annual dinner in their honor for several years. Unfortunately, the number of families attending this event has grown over that time because of the on-going conflicts being fought by our armed services.
Chapter 522 has provided an honor guard for the annual Gold Star Families Ceremonies in Oldsmar, Florida during the month of September. Many of the families attending that tribute also attend our dinner during the month of September. We hope to continue supporting these ceremonies in the future.
Our chapter will always be committed to working with this group because they have made extraordinary sacrifices for our nation. Several of the Gold Star Families remain in contact with our chapter throughout the calendar year. We believe we have a strong partnership in place and we will continue to work with the local leaders of Gold Star Families to plan events that meet their needs and wishes.
Below are pictures from our recent events with the Gold Star Families.
