Join AARP in St. Louis Trail Trekkers for a guided two mile hike through Veterans Tribute Park on Saturday, November 5th. In recognition of Veterans Day, AARP will be accepting donations of non-perishable items for Forces for Food Veteran & Military Pantry.  (If you would like to donate items to the Pantry but do not want to hike - not a problem!  Items can be dropped off until Noon.)

Our hiking team will take care of everything - you just need to wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, bring some water and your sense of adventure. Check in starts at 9:15 am and the hike will start at 9:30 am.

A little more about Veterans Tribute Park....The Fallen Heroes Memorial features a 28-foot American flag with the dog tags of 7,040 fallen heroes and 50 gold stars in honor of the family members of fallen soldiers who died while serving in a time of conflict. Created by an all-volunteer veterans organization, the display symbolizes a flag draped over a fallen soldier’s casket. A battlefield cross sculpted from mahogany wood by veteran artist Alicia Dietz is displayed in the front of the flag.
