Hamre Giesen Chapter 8, an Iowa Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans, is co-hosting a Veteran Family Fun Day with Thunder Rode, a therapeutic horsemanship program for individuals with special needs.

The Veteran Family Fun Day is an invitation for veterans and their families to experience camaraderie with each other through horse activities. Free lunch and free horse rides are offered Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m.-noon at 1957 Meadowlark Road, Decorah.

This event is part of Tri-State Thunder Vets, which is a Thunder Rode service of Veterans helping Veterans.

During the event, there will be a sign-up and informational session about the Veterans National TEE (Training, Exposure, Experience) Tournament in Riverside, Iowa, in September.
