Our community is so blessed to have military jets and WWII planes flying in the Rose City AirFest. And CampVs Veterans’ Assistance Program depends heavily on our community’s support. It is the best way to say ‘thank you for your service’ to those who dedicated their lives to protect our freedom”. Be sure to watch CampV’s social media for updates.
