Branson’s lavish resort, Chateau on the Lake, will be the venue once again for the 20th Anniversary Military Gala & Banquet, November 9, 2016 hosted by the POW Network.

Over its long running history, the military salute has honored veterans from all eras and highlighted unique military occupations, such as the Army Nurse Corps, Military Chaplains, Special Ops and Vietnam helicopter pilots. The theme this year is “those that have gone before us.”

The evening, patterned after a dining out, is open to the public. It starts at 5:00 pm with a cash bar cocktail hour and dancing by “Party to Go” owned by a United States Air Force Master Sergeant retired and his wife. Portraits are available through SwiftShots.

The main hall salute opens with traditional Posting of the Colors, a candlelight POW/MIA service, military toasts with wine on the tables, followed by dinner. Outdoor fireworks are scheduled for intermission. The 2nd half opens with a recognition of sponsors and then the presentation of annual awards. The evening salute ends with a unique tribute to the fallen. Dancing will close the evening out.

During the evening, birthdays for the Armed Forces will be recognized, and United States Marines will participate in the annual Marine Corps birthday celebration as the Corps turns 241 years old. Last year’s Commandants message reminded Marines that the “watch of the each Marine in not confined to the time he spends on active duty. It lasts as long as he is “proud to bear the title of United States Marine.” Attendees truly bear witness to that statement.

Members of the 4th Infantry (IVY) Division, several former Prisoner of War, and a group of veterans from North Dakota as well as a number of former special ops (Special Forces, Army Rangers, and Navy SEALs) will be attending.

The City of Branson and the 76 Entertainment CID (Community Improvement District) have established Missouri’s largest public/private partnership to revitalize Branson’s famous Highway 76, transforming it into a state-of-the-art entertainment district. With over 300 property owners comprising the 76 Entertainment Community Improvement District working in partnership with the City of Branson, the 76 Entertainment CID could quite possibly be the largest public/private partnership in the nation.

“Business and property owners along the five-mile 76 corridor have taken a vast interest and ownership in the project and its evolution, and they have come to the table to share their ideas, expertise, and overall support of the project,” says City of Branson Mayor, Karen Best. “The collaboration of all of these entities truly demonstrates the strength of the community as these stakeholders unite in a common mission to improve not only the infrastructure, access and safety along the corridor, but also ensure the end result is an unique, family friendly experience for out visitors.”

In honor of the Fire Service and Firefighter Appreciation Month, the first ever Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge in Branson will be held May 6 – 7 at Branson Landing. As seen on ESPN for a dozen years, the Challenge annually attracts hundreds of U.S. and Canadian municipal fire departments at more than 25 locations and is now expanding to countries around the world, including New Zealand, Germany, Argentina, Chile, and South Africa.

The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public. Wearing “full bunker gear” and the Scott 5.5 Air-Pak breathing apparatus, pairs of competitors race head-to-head as they simulate the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a linked series of five tasks including climbing the 5-story tower, hoisting, chopping, dragging hoses and rescuing a life-sized, 175 lb. “victim” as they race against themselves, their opponent, and the clock.

The Branson Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 152, Branson Landing, and Branson Convention and Visitors Bureau are partnering to bring the Scott Firefighter Challenge to Branson, MO for the FIRST TIME in 2016, sponsored in part by Come Alive Crossfit. The Challenge seeks to encourage firefighter fitness and demonstrate the profession’s rigors to the public.
