Each year thousands of soldiers are given a leave to visit family and friends during the holidays. At Fort Leonard Wood there are a number of service members who are left behind with very little to do. Over the past few years the Lebanon Friends of the Fort has stepped in to provide the soldiers with a day of activities and entertainment and this year that will be taking place on December 20th.
Lebanon Friends of the Fort President Brennon Willard said this a day long event…..
The event is called Rock the Block and, while it’s not open to the public, it is a community effort. The Friends of the Fort continues to seek partnerships and sponsors to help make the event a success. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the effort, contact Melinda Fries at the Lebanon Area Foundation at 417-532-8898.
