The Hays Larks are inviting everyone to the Eighth annual Military Appreciation Night in conjunction with their game against the Bethany (Okla.) Bulls at 7 p.m. Sunday at Larks Park. All active, reserve, and retired military personnel are specially invited to attend and will be honored on the field during pregame ceremonies. Military personnel also will be recognized after the sixth inning prior to the singing of “God Bless America.” Military personnel in attendance should check in at the east side of the grandstand by 6:45 p.m. Sunday evening.
Fans are encouraged to be in the park by 6:50 p.m. to show their appreciation and support for all military personnel during pregame ceremonies. Those ceremonies will feature recognition of all military personnel in attendance, a Color Guard provided by VFW Post No. 9076, and the “National Anthem” sung live by Raeanna Peacock. Those in attendance also will enjoy patriotic music and a red, white, and blue decorated park throughout the evening. A booth will feature information about Camp Corral, an organization that coordinates camps for children of wounded, disabled or fallen military service members. Golden Corral will be giving T-shirts to the first 150 people who visit the Camp Corral booth at the game. Flags lining the park will be provided courtesy of American Legion Riders Post 173 of Hays. Free admission to the game will be provided courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Hays, VFW Post 9076, and Golden Corral.
