//“Salute to Veterans” planning team looking for volunteers

The Village of Estero will salute all Estero veterans, active military, first responders and gold star parents from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., Saturday, November 17 with a free, family-oriented party at the Estero Community Park.

There will be children’s activities, free hot dogs with fixings, a 21-gun salute, patriotic and pop music performed by Estero concert artist Lindsey Graham as well as recognition of those who are currently serving, or have previously served, our country.

This event is being planned by a team of volunteers from a variety of Estero community organizations.  They are asking for a few additional volunteers to help make the event a complete success.

About 6 – 8 volunteers are needed to help set up at 8 a.m. for about an hour the morning of the event, 2 volunteers are needed during the event to monitor all of the trash cans so they don’t overflow, and another 6 – 8 volunteers are needed for about an hour to clean up around 1:30 p.m. (tables, trash cans, chairs, etc.).  Please fill out the form here if you’d like to join the team.

The goal of this event is to bring the residents of Estero together in a fun atmosphere to develop and share the sense of community.
