6th Annual Gathering of the Guard

July 29-31, 2016 at Liberty Lake Regional Park, Washington (previously at US Clear Lake Recreation)

Please join us for the 6th Annual Gathering of the Guard in the cool lake breezes of the Liberty Lake Campground near Spokane, Washington.

As you can see, the NEW location for the Gathering of the Guard will be the Liberty Lake Campground, just off I-90 at the N. Liberty Lake Road exit. We will be attempting to put maps on the Special Events page of the state PGR website, so check that in the next week or so.

We’ll be grilling burgers and dogs to order on Friday evening. Saturday morning we will offer muffins, fruit, coffee and juice so folks can get out and enjoy the regional events. We will gather for our traditional Saturday evening dinner featuring grilled ribs, chicken, brats and plentiful sides. A big brunch will be served on Sunday morning before everyone gets on the road home.

PROJECT 22

PROJECT  22

After tragedy struck home last year, two combat-wounded veterans set out to end a little-known epidemic in America. Their 6,500-mile cross-country mission was to raise awareness of the high rate of suicide among Veterans and show their brothers and sisters-at-arms that there is hope for them. During their journey, they interviewed researchers, healthcare providers, and Veterans. Many of those they encountered had either contemplated or attempted suicide and were able to share the life-saving alternative sources of hope that they had found. Asking hard-hitting questions and opening up about their own struggles, and painfully spurred on by recent estimations that 22 veterans are taking their own lives every single day, Daniel and Doc will stop at nothing to reach tomorrow’s twenty-two.

Here is the trailer for the film: https://vimeo.com/121737934
