Dear Soldier is a project held at The Festival of the Hills. The annual Festival of the Hills fireworks show at Borden Park takes place on June 29th. This event has become a huge tradition in our community. Last year, the Rochester Area Jaycees added to the tradition in a patriotic way by hosting a “thank-you station” — a tent where festival-goers could fill out thank you cards to the troops.
The Jaycees plan to bring Dear Soldier back once again to Festival of the Hills. This year’s event begins at 6pm with family games and live entertainment. The Dear Soldier tent will be open from 4pm until dusk. The fireworks show begins at 10:06 pm.
