Street benefit slated
The Homes for Wounded Warriors Program has announced that an Armed Forces Day benefit will be held Saturday from noon-9 p.m., at the Wet Spot Bar in Decatur to help raise money for the program.
The benefit will be an outdoor event on the street for all ages and will include the American Legion color guard, live music, a corn hole tournament, kids games, tip boards and raffles.
The Wet Spot, the former Donna's Tap, is located on Second St. between Monroe and Jackson streets. That section of Second St. will be closed to traffic for the occasion.
Proceeds from the event will go to Homes for Wounded Warriors, an organization that provides help for wounded soldiers returning home with physical limitations that may prevent them from living in their home without modifications, according to the release.
Members of the organization may build ramps, modify bathrooms, or widen doorways to accommodate wheelchairs of an existing home. If an existing home cannot be modified, in some cases a new home may be built, according to the report.
