Veterans Day in Wellington

Nov 9, 2021 | Blog, Life in Wellington

If you haven’t heard, Veterans Day 2021 in Wellington is going to be the biggest one yet. Veterans Day is always special to my family but it’s even more special this year as Mick was just medically retired from the Army after nearly 20 years of service on Saturday, November 6th.

Join me in celebrating our Veterans at events happening throughout Wellington this week. All events will take place at Old Colorado Brewing Company & the BBQ Love Shack at 3700 W Cleveland Avenue, Wellington, CO.
