Throughout the year, Ladore hosts a range of special events. From Family Vacation Weekends, Veterans Open House, Festive Holiday Craft Fair Weekend and Indoor Yard Sales, there are plenty of opportunities for you to take a break from your busy routine and recharge.

Veterans Open House

The Salvation Army is proud to host the Annual Veterans Salute Open House this year, once again honoring all veterans. We deeply value the opportunity to express gratitude, respect, and support for these individuals who have made tremendous sacrifices to safeguard the freedoms and rights we enjoy today. You are invited to partake in this special event.

The day will be brimming with engaging activities:

  • At 10:00 am, the American Legion Post #807 and neighboring groups will conduct a service honoring both past and present veterans.
  • Following the service, there will be a showcase of classic cars and motorcycles, with trophies up for grabs.
  • Enjoy boat rides on picturesque Lake Ladore.
  • Representatives from the Wayne County Office of Veteran’s Affairs and other veteran-focused programs and organizations will be available to address any veteran-related inquiries.

Indulge in lively music, freshly brewed coffee, and delectable donuts courtesy of The Salvation Army – known for their excellent coffee-making skills, especially among military personnel. Don’t miss the flea market/yard sale for great finds. Vendor Spaces are available!
