Looking for something to do with the family to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday? This year the City of Brockton will be holding the 12th Annual July 4th Concert & BBQ at the VA Hospital from 2-4 p.m at 940 Belmont Street. Dale and the Duds will be playing and we will be serving a Fourth of July meal of hot dogs, chips, apple pie and drink free for the vets. The meal is avaliable to the general public for public $3. The money raised will be given to the recreation fund to allow the veterans to get away and enjoy other events off campus. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for the event. For further information please call Coordinator Susan Curry (508) 631-5624.
