Washington, N.C. (March 9, 2015) - Cypress Landing is actively planning our 7th Military Appreciation Day to honor our US Forces' Active Duty troops who are serving our country. Saturday, April 25th, is the special day. A color guard from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base will highlight the opening ceremonies at ~ 9:30 AM. This is an outstanding event for our military veterans and our Cypress Landing/Chocowinity/Washington/Greenville community.
The purpose of our Military Appreciation Day is three fold:
- Honor our serving service men and women through an expense free, good time playing golf;
- Provide a donation to the Fisher House; and
- Promote the game of golf and the Cypress Landing Golf Club
Funded by Golf Club members, Cypress Landing residents, Washington/Chocowinity/Greenville businesses and individual contributors, all proceeds over our costs are donated “locally” to support our injured service men and women and their families. After last year’s event we donated over $5,300 to the Camp Lejeune Fisher House Foundation.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Fisher House, it provides a temporary home, filled with warm, caring people (a home away from home) who help family members endure the stresses associated with a loved one’s serious medical condition admitted for medical care at the Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune. There are no other facilities like this on military installations. There are now more than 62 Fisher Houses located at major military treatment facilities and VA Medical centers throughout the United States. Fisher Houses do not receive tax money or military dollars. Charitable contributions such as from the CLGC Military Appreciation Day event provide the majority of their funding.
One of the most important measures of a country’s greatness lies in how it treats those who have put their lives on the line for their country and their families that made and continue to make sacrifices as a result of their service. Cypress Landing honors them.
