VISTA Member Daniel Jacobs Organizes Veterans Recreation Expo

The Veterans Recreation Expo is approaching quickly, and the V-ALP staff is very excited to bring the Veterans and their families of Yavapai County a full day of outdoor recreational fun.

We began working on this project back in November 2012, and we were unaware at the time how big this project would get. We originally imagined hosting a small group of participants at Watson Lake Park for a day of kayaking and rappelling, but as word got around, more and more people wanted to get involved. Fortunately, V-ALP was up to the task, and we’re now ready to launch one of the most exciting Veteran events Yavapai County has ever seen.

What started as a day of kayaking and rappelling turned into hiking, activities for children, a barbeque, CrossFit and yoga demonstrations, massage therapy, even a kiosk to help Veterans find jobs, and so much more. There are a number of great organizations showing up including the DAV Chapter 16 of Prescott, the Northern Arizona VA Healthcare System, the Wounded Warrior Project, , and others.

The event will take place at Watson Lake Park in Prescott on Saturday, April 27th, 2013 from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. The barbecue lunch will be served from 11:30 AM until 1:00 PM. All Veterans, Active Duty, Reservists, Guardsmen, and their families are invited to come spend a fun-filled day with us. We hope to see you there!
