Come support veterans at the June 1st events in Forsyth, Montana!

The summer season has just begun, and you may be thinking, “What can we do now?” How about a quick trip to Forsyth to support veterans?

Montana Warriors on the Water, a nonprofit collaboration of outdoor recreationists, veterans and local businesses, is hosting four events in Forsyth. You can choose from the following options:

Patriotic Parade, May 31, 7:00 p.m.

Why wait until Saturday to honor our military? Come after work Friday for a parade on Main Street that starts at seven, followed by live music and street bingo.

Color Run, June 1st, 7:00 a.m. registration, 8:00 a.m. start

Jog through clouds of pigment. I highly recommend glasses or eye protection. Event registration costs $25. The run starts at the Rosebud County Fairgrounds in Forsyth, right next to the hospital.

Poker Run, 9:00 a.m. registration, 10:00 a.m. start and 3:00 p.m. finish

The bet to start the game is $20 at Forsyth Station; you will be dealt the first card. The next cards come from Junction City in Custer, BW Grill and Bar in Hysham, Forsyth Country Club and finally the Rosebud County Fairgrounds in Forsyth. With a total payout of $800, the best hand will receive 50%, the second best 35% and the third 15%.

Any vehicle can be used, but it may be advisable to designate a driver who does not drink alcohol.

Cornhole tournament, 12:00 pm registration; 1:00 pm start

Back then, it was horseshoes. Now, it's cornhole. The entry fee is $40 per team, which competes for a total of $1,800 in cash. Four round-robin tournaments determine the upper and lower divisions, then each division competes in double elimination format. The top three teams in both divisions receive cash prizes.

These events on June 1st are also fundraising events.

Warriors on the Water provides veterans with recreational therapy as well as a network with each other and with other resources dedicated to their well-being. Their goal is to effectively meet the needs of each veteran with a welcoming approach. And quite honestly, enjoy Montana's outdoors along the way.

So please bring your disposable money and your compassionate spirit. It should be a nice Friday-Saturday getaway.
