One local farm is honoring those who served our country and is helping wounded warriors to heal.
Today was Military Appreciation Day at Healing Strides in Boones Mill.
The farm offers equine therapy for veterans all year long.
At the event, there was food, pony rides and activities for the kids.
Those who sponsored the event say it’s great to see the community come out and support veterans.
“It’s been a wonderful day, absolutely beautiful. We’ve had people of all ages, veterans from all different areas of service and the wonderful workers here at Healing Strides have been tremendous and they do incredible work and we are just happy to support them,” said Coleman Brooks, with the Wounded Warrior Project.
Before the festivities began there was a flag raising ceremony to honor those who have served.
