Sun Valley Convention celebrates Armed Forces Day

Coming up soon-The MD 39 Convention in Sun Valley is taking place May 14-16!  There's still time to make plans to go! 

This year's convention theme is "Armed Forces Day" which is celebrated on the third Saturday in May each year.  The day was created in 1949 to honor the military serving in the Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marines as a group instead of each branch having a separate "day".  The creation of Armed Forces Day coincides with the unification of the armed forces under the Department of Defense.  The 2010 theme is "United in Strength".  You can read more about Armed Forces Day on the US Dept. of Defense website.


Back to the convention-all the information can be found on the Lions 39W website including a registration form.  Take the opportunity to get out of town and relax with friends in beautiful Sun Valley!  See you there!
