Hello All!

We’re in the final days of the 2019 and 10th annual Patriot Tour! What an amazing year as we inch ever closer to that huge milestone of having raised $1 Million dollars over our 10 year history! Not bad for a bunch of volunteers.
We have heard that many of you out of towners will be joining us for the homecoming celebration. Whether it’s the first time we get to meet in person or we get the honor of seeing you once again…we can’t wait to welcome you in to Wisconsin!
We have a ton of stuff going on ALL weekend as we’ve worked really hard to create a Patriotic experience throughout the town and community of Beaver Dam. Details of the day can be found on our website at www.nationofpatriots.comand listed below.
For those of you in town on Friday night, come out and join us for a very informal get together at Ooga Brewing Company – 301 S Spring St, Beaver Dam, WI 53916 – from 6-9pm. Ooga Brewing has created a special brew just for us called “KICKSTANDS UP!!” Come on in for a beer or stick around all night! We’ll be hanging out drinking great beer and eating pizza.
