HOW IT GOT STARTED
RETIRED VETERANS AND CARING CITIZENS
One evening after a day filled with outdoor activities, a bunch of us friends with our families were hanging out on the beach, having a BBQ, and sharing stories. We didn't know it at that moment, but the entire day was really an impromptu retreat... and it made all of us feel re-energized, happy, loved.
Then Wayne (my Canadian military friend) suggested that we start offering this for Veterans. I liked his idea. And for several years, we personally sponsored and hosted events at our place. Later I learned that if we established a non-profit organization, we could help more people (Veterans, First Responders, and Families).
In 2019, we created the American Veterans Projects and Retreats (AVPAR) to honor and assist Veterans, First Responders, and their families.
We are looking forward to making new friends
and "Sharing the Blessings".
