Published: Sunday, March 24, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

McHENRY – Joe’s Wish is planning a Patriots in the Park event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 25 at Veterans Memorial Park in McHenry.

This is a day to celebrate the community of patriots, both veterans and nonveterans. There will be a brig area with prominent figures raising bail, crafters, vendors, veterans organizations, games and food, plus a memorial balloon release with taps at the end of the day.

The proceeds from this event will go toward helping military men and women and their families in need and also help send children of fallen heroes to camp.

Joe’s Wish is looking for artists, crafters, vendors, businesses and veterans organizations to participate. The charge for a booth area will be $50. There will be no charge for the veterans organizations.

To participate, contact Joe’s Wish at www.joeswish.com or email joeswishnfp@gmail.com.
