Vet2Vet of Family Services of Westchester and the New York Tri-State Chapter of Blue Star Families invite you to join them for the Dandelion Festival: A Community Celebration of Military Kids at Muscoot Farm in Katonah, NY on Saturday, April 9, 10am-3pm. The Dandelion Festival will be a fun-filled day of celebrating our military kids, both past and present. This is a free event!
The dandelion is the flower of the military child because it puts roots down almost anywhere and is impossible to destroy.
Join in to celebrate these resilient kids with exhibitors, games, and giveaways. Interact with farm animals, food, Veteran Service Organizations, Military Service Organizations, and others!
All are welcome!
Why the Dandelion?
Dandelions are made up of three main parts: The flower (seeds), the stem and the roots. They are tough, can survive almost anywhere and are constantly moving and starting over. Dandelion seeds don’t have any say on where the wind will take them when it is time to venture on. And just like military kids who are along for the ride, they go where their parents and the military take them and find a way to be resilient and start all over again. They put down roots, create new friends, find routines and then a strong wind blows and they get to do it all over again.
Vet2Vet of Westchester supports Blue Star Families mission, which focuses on empowering military families to thrive by connecting them with their civilian neighbors — both people and organizations — to create strong communities of support.
