The Snowball Express is coming to town! Sunday, December 2nd, Fort Worth will be the proud host to nearly 2,000 family members of our fallen military heroes. This will be the first time this event has to come to Fort Worth.
Snowball Express is an organization that's mission is to "Honor America's fallen military service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice since 9/11 by humbly serving the families they left behind. Champion their children's future success by creating opportunities for joy, friendship, and communal healing, by connecting these families to one another."
Want to get involved? They'll be coming in a caravan of around 40 buses that will end up in the Stockyards National Historic District for a day of fun. Mayor Price and the entire City Council want to make sure Fort Worth knocks their socks off and has a big local showing of support for these families. They are asking citizens to line the streets for the caravan as it comes through downtown Fort Worth via Spur 280 at about 10 a.m. that morning, make their way out of downtown over the Main St. bridge, and head toward the Stockyards.
As you can imagine, the holidays are a particularly difficult time for these children and spouses who are missing their loved one who paid a very high price for our freedom. This is a great opportunity to show them your appreciation and wish them a Happy New Year!
