2017 Veterans Appreciation Day


The 2017 "Veterans Appreciation Day" held at the Nicholas County Veterans Memorial Park on July 11, 2017 was a huge success!  We had over 80 veterans to participate!  They played the Murbles Game, socialized, ate a great lunch, received free prizes, and were taken on a free tour of Summersville Lake on Sarge's Dive Shop's new dive boat.

This event was made possible by Sarge's Dive Shop, Summersville Lake Marina, Inc. and L.Z. Rainelle.  L.Z. Rainelle is a non-profit 501c3 veterans organization located in Rainelle, WV that sponsors veterans activities all over West Virginia.
