Mahopac will be holding an event to benefit those that have served our country, both past and present. It's the Armed Forces Appreciation Festival, and it's happening this July.

I love the idea of this festival! It's great that the community is getting together to help those who have done so much for our country.

Last year, this event raised more than $5,000, and they are looking to go above and beyond that this year. The festival will take place on Saturday, July 9. Kickoff time is noon, and happens at the Mahopac Marine.

The article from Tour Putnam, mentions an app you can download to get updated information. It's the Mahopac Marine app and it looks like it's available for both iPhone and Android phones. I downloaded it to play around with it a little bit, and there is a "News" section and an "Events Calendar" section with event info.
