In 2015, Westlake Development Group was able to merge with representatives to create the Veteran’s Steering Committee after gaining more attention from companies and event sponsors. The Veteran’s Steering Committee consists of passionate people willing to spend their time and efforts giving back to our veteran community. During our 2015 Street of Dreams veteran’s event, Westlake Development Group and the Veteran’s Steering Committee gained more media attention to bring in multiple sponsors to host an event that included:
• A catered lunch from Costco
• Stories and scenes from the Historical Outreach Society
• A WWII tank to fire off blanks.
With our National Anthem and flyover during the flag raise, we had a moment of silence to commemorate those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Attendees were then invited to stay for an evening show put on by local country artist, Kurt Van Meter and his band. The 2015 all-day ceremony brought in over 1,850 people.
