A Madison County Memorial Day weekend tradition enters its third decade this week.
The 30th annual LZ Friendly military reunion and campout will be held Friday, May 22, at 7 a.m., and end Monday, May 25, at the “Landing Zone” Friendly camp on Johnny McElroy Road in Danielsville.
The event provides camaraderie for veterans of all wars. There is a flag retirement ceremony set for Saturday and a candle light service at sundown Saturday evening to honor military men and women who have passed on at the “Gone But Not Forgotten” Wall.
The event will include music from the Country River Band Friday night and the Common People Band Saturday night. LZ Friendly’s DJ JamnJimi will play hits from A.F.V.N. radio. And camp goers can bring their own instruments and join in.
The camp fee is $40 per adult for the entire weekend. Kids under 12 get in free. The annual dues is $20 and can be paid when participants register for the campout.
