The Meagher County Community Center is a local hub for community information, education, and senior support. From informational sessions to hosting themed dinners for all residents, the community center works year-round to provide activities that foster communal engagement. The center also works closely with veterans and hosts several events throughout the year to support organizations such as the Meagher County American Legion Post & Unit 25. On Tuesday, July 2nd, the Meagher County Community Center will host a barbecue-themed ‘Celebrating Our Veterans’ Luncheon. Beginning at noon, all veterans and their spouses are invited to dine for free in recognition of their service to the United States. At the lunch, American classics such as burgers, baked beans, and coleslaw will be served, as well as apple pie as a dessert. The Meagher County Community Center’s barbecue, hosted in appreciation for those who have served, stands as a patriotic kickoff to the Fourth of July week. With numerous upcoming events such as the Bank of the Rockies’ Annual Fourth of July Parade, the Race For This Place Fun Run, the Meagher County Volunteer Fire Department’s Fireworks, and the Freedom Days Street Dance, the recognition of the veterans at the forefront of the celebrations allows for great reflection on the anniversary of independence. The upcoming events in White Sulphur Springs not only offer a variety of activities for residents and visitors to enjoy but also provide meaningful opportunities to honor and recognize the service of veterans. The Meagher County Community Center’s barbecue in honor of veterans serves as a patriotic commencement to the Fourth of July week, exemplifying the community's commitment to those who have served. As the community comes together to celebrate Independence Day, the dedication to fostering a sense of unity and appreciation for those who have served is evident.
