Saturday, July 23, you are invited to visit the Travis Mills Foundation's Maine Chance Lodge Veterans Retreat in Rome. The event, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, is being held so you can see the progress of the construction.

Things get underway at 1:00pm and auction winners will be announced at 4:00pm. There will also be live music and food trucks.

The retreat's mission is described at the Travis Mills website.

The retreat will be uniquely designed to provide state-of-the-art “smart home” technology in a relaxed lodge setting. It will fill a vital role in recovery, camaraderie, spousal support, re-connection, and reintegration. Veteran families from all over the United States will enjoy a week of swimming, boating, fishing, site-seeing, campfires, adaptive sports, and spa treatments including massage, facials, and yoga.

Travis is very excited to show off the progress of construction. By the way, please wear closed-toed shoes.
