The Veteran’s Recognition Day Celebration is a sincere, grateful, yet festive event for veterans, their families, and the entire community. Come on out if you’re a veteran, if you know a veteran, or if you’d like to thank a veteran for serving our country!

Then on Veteran’s Day, Monday, November 11, veterans can enjoy dinner as a thank you from the UltraStar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle. The 347 Grill will serve a free lasagna dinner with a side salad and garlic bread for all veterans. This offer is good while supplies last. Veterans can also enjoy a free movie admission at UltraStar Cinemas, from the Ak-Chin Indian Community Council. Some limits apply. Present your military ID to receive these specials.
