Support our Veterans
Support the Citizen Solder who gave his all. For some it was Service, for others it was more personal. This Fund-raiser helps the Jefferson Barracks Veterans Wheelchair Sports Team to off-set their travel expenses to the Games as the Veterans Administration does not cover travel and lodging, these are paid for by the Athlete. The Games are a multi-event sports and rehabilitation program for military service veterans who use wheelchairs for sports competition due to spinal cord injuries, amputations or certain neurological problems. Attracting more than 500 athletes each year, the National Veterans Wheelchair Games is the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world.
In the past thirteen years lodge 2455 has raised $90.000. Come out and help the High Ridge Elks Lodge 2455 and the 6th Corps Living History Group St Louis, MO along with the Military Vehicle Preservation Association and others in supporting our Nation’s most precious asset, Our Veterans!
This Event focus on WW II, Korea, Viet Nam and present day conflicts, other time periods are welcome. HRS Safety and Authinticity rules are in force. All Military Vehicles are welcome.
There will be outdoor and indoor display areas. If you wish to set up any tents or camp display there is plenty of room on the Elks Lodge grounds.
Indoor display area will hold @ 40 tables or several open areas on the floor depending on what is needed. You must bring your own table covering.
Since we share the room with groups such as D.A.R.E. and the M-1 Grand Club, you need to request in advance the number of tables needed for your display and or if you need ground outside for your camp.
Set up starts at 10am, tear down is at 5pm. The event is open to the public 12 noon – 5pm. NO camping on site. Pre-registration is required as lunch is usually provided and a head count is necessary.
Re-enactor parking is on site, we just ask that you park away from the building to allow the public improved access and to allow the MVPA to display their vehicles as a group without our POV’s.
