GHC to host Veterans and Military Family Fun Day for the community


Each year, April is recognized as the month of the military child, which dates back to 1986. In honor of this time of year, Georgia Highlands College will be holding its annual Veterans and Military Family Fun Day event on the Floyd campus on April 18th from 10AM to 2PM.

“Many of our veterans have families,” event organizer Amy Wise said, “so we plan a family friendly event that is completely free to our veterans and military students, as well as their families.“

Wise, who also serves as GHC’s veterans affairs coordinator, stated that military service, especially deployments, affects the whole family, and events like this are a perfect opportunity to show veterans and military students and their families as much support as possible.

The event—which includes free food, door prizes, a petting zoo, rock climbing wall, Bingo, a bounce house, canoeing on the lake, and much more—is also open to the public, Wise said.

“We want to include military families in the community, so we can have them on campus and show our appreciation for their service,” she said.

The Student Veterans of America Club at GHC has teamed up with the Georgia Army National Guard Family Assistance Specialist in Floyd County to host this free event.
