Friends of Rolling Rock Ranch was founded in 2016, after three friends and their spouses got together and discussed how to give back to the local community of veterans. While the founding members of the organization did not receive the call to serve in the military, each of their parents served proudly and fostered that passion for recognizing veterans for their selfless service.
"Rolling Rock Ranch and Friends of Rolling Rock Ranch have truly been the patriarchs of never letting our veterans feel forgotten," said Tiffany Carr, community engagement coordinator for Michigan Veteran Homes. "Every year they invite our veterans to participate in their annual fundraiser to hunt pheasant, break bread with friends and enjoy the ranch. The veterans look forward to this hunting experience every year."
While this event is closed to the public, media are invited to attend to capture the check presentation and remarks by Friends of Rolling Rock Ranch Vice President Brian Bennitt and Treasurer Don Pyles. Media should plan to be in place at the entrance to the old home under the white canopy no later than 1:45 p.m. Media are asked to kindly RSVP to Michael Kroll at 517-285-9734 or email@example.com.
