September 23rd from 11 AM to 4 PM and YOU are invited!”
The Darkhorse Lodge Grand Opening will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, September 23.
The day will begin with the ribbon cutting at 11 a.m., followed by live music, a pig roast, beverages and snacks. Darkhorse Lodge is located at 1951 Swor Rd., Springville.
Tours of the facility will be held so the public can see what has been worked on for the past nine years.
Darkhorse Lodge is a retreat for combat veterans of all branches of service to come to relax, fish on Kentucky Lake, enjoy area activities and communicate with other veterans. All at no cost to the guests.
It was the brainchild of Kirk and Gretchen Catherwood, who lost their son Lance Cpl. Alec Catherwood when he was killed in action October 14, 2010. Each room at the retreat will be named after one of the 25 men lost from the Marine Corps 3/5, Darkhorse unit.
You can look on the Darkhorse Lodge Facebook page for a glimpse of all the work that has been done to construct the facility.
