Music Fest underway at Neosho National Fish Hatchery

Updated:
The Neosho community is honoring its veterans this Memorial Day weekend by raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The project aims to help soldiers psychologically and physically when they return from serving overseas.

Walgreens teamed up with the Neosho National Fish Hatchery to put on an all day music festival today, featuring eight different bands from 12p.m.- 9 p.m.

There are also inflatables for the kids to play on, food, and several organizations that support our veterans.

"I hope that the soldiers, at least today, I hope that they really feel loved," said founder Kevin Foote. "I know that everybody that's here is here for the right reasons, and we're all patriots. I think that they sense that and I think it's important."

"Each and every one of us who are participating are very privileged and honored to be part of the celebration for our veterans," said Bob Meeks, Patriot Guard representative.

"It's just good, this is small town America," said David Hendrix, manager of the Neosho National Fish Hatchery.  "Being able to give back to our military people, give back to our kids and our seniors, that's what it's all about."

Organizers say they are hoping to make the Memorial Day weekend Neosho Music Fest an annual event.
