This month the VeteranBargains Patriot Award of the month is going to a veteran organization that goes way beyond for all us brothers and sisters that have served. Formerly The Kansas Vietnam Veterans and Family Reunion - NOW - Kansas Veterans and Family Reunion is one fantastic group that since 1988 has put on a reunion here in Kansas. Bringing together veterans from all branches of the service and from all over the country, the 2020 reunion will be held on June 19, 20 and 21 at El Dorado Lake outside El Dorado Kansas.

We know we are all brothers and sisters in arms. What great way to help bring us all together.

Held on Veterans Point, Shady Creek Area, El Dorado State Lake. The reunion allows veterans to gather together for fellowship and fun.

There will be FREE Lake access for all Prior Service Military, Military Retirees, Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard Service Members. A current Military ID (CAC), Veteran's Administration ID, DD-214 or other proof of service is required. (lake fees will be in effect for non-veterans)

Entrance costs to the reunion: Wrist bands $5.00 for 12 and older. This helps them cover the cost to put the reunion on. (The Reunion receives no monies from the State Park service, and they pay a permit fee to host this event at the lake.) As a 501(c)4 volunteer organization, the money brought in is put back into the reunion. A part of the proceeds are donated to different worthy veterans causes.

Veterans from all conflicts, family members and supporters are welcome. This reunion is for you. The reunion has been moved to JUNE in an effort to get some cooler weather. You encouraged to bring your friends and family to the reunion. 

There will be all kinds of fun things planned:

  • music by live bands
  • a very special USO show
  • auctions
  • opportunities to win prizes
  • kids' entertainment tent
  • food
  • vendors

(The auctions and raffles are used to fund the reunion's expenses and prepare for the following year.)        (This list subject to change and additions)

Kansas Veterans & Family Reunion Car Show will be held Saturday June 20, For car show information contact Darrel call 316-992-5067. Registration for the car show starts at 9:00. (Watch for a flyer coming soon to VeteranBargains Event page)

Bring your friends and we look forward to seeing you all again at Veterans Point June 19-21, 2020. 

Lastly to all my Brother and Sister Veterans, I wish to say WELCOME HOME!
