Celebrating Our Local Veterans

June 20, 2023 | Julie Malkin-Manning

Join us for the remarkable 3-day Incline Village Crystal Bay Local Heroes 4th of July Celebration, where we proudly honor and express our gratitude to our local veterans and active military service personnel.

Kicking off the festivities on Sunday, July 2, the Local Heroes Parade will be led by our esteemed Parade Grand Marshal, MacAvoy Layne. Making a stunning appearance in his 1930 Ford Model A Woodie Wagon will be Jim Nowlin, a past parade Grand Marshal representing the IVCB Veterans Club.

On Monday, July 3rd, we extend a warm invitation to our local Veterans for a special Veterans Recognition luncheon at Aspen Grove, generously sponsored by Cornerstone Church. Tickets will be available at the door, and all Veterans will be admitted free of charge.

As the sun begins to set on the 3rd of July, the Vet Club will host their annual Flag Retirement Ceremony, weather permitting. We invite everyone to participate by bringing their old and worn flags, which will be retired in the traditional manner, providing a ceremonial opportunity to pay tribute to our nation’s symbol.

On the much-anticipated 4th of July, the festivities commence with the IVCB Veterans Club Pancake Breakfast at Aspen Grove, open to all. This breakfast serves as the Club’s largest annual fundraiser and offers a fantastic opportunity to meet and express appreciation to our local heroes. Enjoy a scrumptious meal of pancakes, bacon, sausage, and blueberries, and for those who wish, optional Mimosas and Bloody Marys will be available. Admission prices are $10 for adults, and $5 for individuals aged 12 and above, while children aged 5 and younger can indulge for free.

Join us in honoring and celebrating our local heroes throughout this incredible 3-day Incline Village Crystal Bay Local Heroes 4th of July Celebration. Let’s come together as a community to show our heartfelt appreciation and respect for those who have served our nation so selflessly.
