The wait is over; Lakes Jam 2014 has arrived!
As you prepare for three days of great music, beer and fun with family and friends, we urge you to take a moment and think about exactly what makes all of this possible.
See, Lakes Jam is more than just a great big party. It’s a celebration of all the things that make our country and communities great! With the Fourth of July just around the bend, we’re compelled to remember all the people, past present and future, who give their lives to protecting and preserving the freedoms we enjoy here in the United States!
As you pack your cars and run last-minute Lakes Jam supplies errands, we encourage you to take notice of all the things you probably take for granted in your daily life. The gas you pump into your car in order to get around. The stores, owned and operated by your friends and neighbors, fully-stocked with everything you need. The schools that shape your childrens’ young minds and help them grow into successful young adults. Hospitals, everywhere, to help you when you need it most. Homes and neighborhoods that are safe, warm and comfortable.
This list could go on and on, but you get it. So, in this final run-up to Lakes Jam, we have one request of you; reach out to someone in uniform in your life, and give them a big thank you for everything they do.
Because, without that person and those like them, we wouldn’t have nearly as many reasons to celebrate.
Happy Fourth, Lakes Jammers. Let’s celebrate music, each other, and America.
