Ninth Annual Sargent Tournament of Heroes
Posted on Jul 1st, 2015
The community of Sargent welcomed over 100 wounded veterans and family members this past weekend as part of their annual Patriots & Heroes Outdoors event. During the four day event, the Matagorda County Cavalry escorted the wounded warriors from Bay City to Sargent, local residents provided lodging in their homes, the vets were treated to a day of fishing, and the community provided several meals for the group.
Friends of the River San Bernard volunteers assisted with meal prep and serving, auction donations, Patriots & Heroes Outdoors logo item sales, as well as providing a fishing boat and captain. FOR Members, Ange and Tom Ronayne, Susan Bailey, Vicki and Don Wardlaw, Vicki and Wayne Head and Ken and Linda Wright represented FOR. Their participation at the event was greatly appreciated.
