Even though Memorial Day has passed, there are still many events to attend for you to honor the men and women that have served our country. The Boise metropolitan area does a fantastic job of honoring veterans by hosting local events for all to enjoy. The VA Home Loans team has compiled some upcoming opportunities that you may be interested in!
This 4th of July, the Restored Community Church will be hosting a free celebration of America.

Although masks are optional, there will be numerous sanitization stations and free socially distanced seating.
