Veterans Treasure Hunt 2017
To honor local disabled veterans, the Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans is partnering with the Uncompahgre Treasure Club (UTC) of Montrose, CO, to host the first annual "Treasure Hunting Heroes" event to be held in Montrose, Saturday, July 29th, 2017. This event was previously named "No Barriers Weekend", which held a week-long event for veterans across the nation, but due to constrictions and funding it was cancelled. However, we wish to continue the treasure hunting event, which was a huge success.
Approximately 20 local disabled veterans will spend the day Metal Detecting, Treasure Hunting, and even Gold Panning. There will be many hidden treasures including silver coins, old coins, tokens for prizes, gold nuggets and various other prizes. A special lunch will be given and awards presented at the end of the day.
To make this day of gratitude a success, we are asking for donations to help
fund this event. Whatever you can give will be sincerely appreciated, and please also spread the word! Thank you.
Rodarte, President UTC
