Wicklunds CARSTAR Hosts Military Appreciation Celebration

Wicklunds CARSTAR in Liberty, Mo., hosted a Military Appreciation Celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 4. The celebration honored the service of active and inactive military members and their families.

The event kicked off with a color guard courtesy of the VFW Liberty Memorial Post 4043, 16-year-old Alex Haywood singing the National Anthem and a 21-gun salute followed by dinner. The Grateful American Entertainment Troupe and pickpocket magicians also were featured at the celebration.

“This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the military and their families for serving our country,” said Gerald Wicklund, owner of Wicklunds CARSTAR. “We also raffled off thousands of dollars of prizes donated by businesses in our community. Some of the prizes were gift cards, a one-night stay at a hotel and much, much more.”

Donations were taken for the Honor Flight Nework, a non-profit organization that provides transportation for WWII veterans to see the memorials.
