OUR MAJOR EVENTS (ONSITE & OFFSITE)

The following events are a wonderful part of the Clear Path for Veterans experience.

They are a great place for Veterans and non-Veterans alike to connect, have fun and help us raise funds for our many valuable programs and services.

Red, White & Blue Barbecue presented by SRC, Inc. - Postponed

The Red, White & Blue Barbecue presented by SRC, Inc. is a down-home country hoedown that supports our programs and services. Our culinary team under the direction of Culinary Director / Executive Chef Christopher Griffin will be preparing a delicious meal featuring unique dishes and sides, festive desserts, plus a variety of bourbon, wine and craft beer selections. The evening will also include the regionally-acclaimed The Fabulous Ripcords. Come out to Clear Path for lively night of fun and festivities.

If you would like to provide an opportunity to a Veteran to attend the event at no charge, you are welcome to purchase a "Sponsor a Veteran" ticket.

The purpose behind the Red, White & Blue Barbecue is two-fold. First, we want to showcase the work being done at Clear Path for Veterans, and second, we want you to have a great time for a worthy cause.

During his tenure as Syracuse University’s head football coach, Doug Marrone and his wife, Helen, saw the great work being done at Clear Path for Veterans and wanted to be a part of an organization that was truly giving back to our CNY Veterans. Doug and Helen suggested that we hold a barbecue to raise money to fund our programs and services, and that is how this event found its roots.

Ride for Clear Path - Sept. 2020

In 2013, Clear Path for Veterans hosted its first organized motorcycle ride. This ride was dedicated to Veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. More than 100 motorcycles arrived at 1223 Salt Springs Road and rode on a spectacularly scenic hour-long trip through Madison County. Upon return of bikes, we serve a delicious barbecue lunch.

More information regarding the 2020 Ride for Clear Path coming soon! The health and safety of all Ride participants is our highest priority and we are working to make the Ride a safe and enjoyable experience for all involved! More information coming soon. Please call 315-687-3300 with any questions.

 

 

 

 

RECURRING EVENTS

In any community, it’s nice to have familiar places, faces and events.  Our recurring events are fantastic for relaxation, wellness and camaraderie. 

Weekly Canteen - Postponed

Our Wednesday Canteen is modeled after the North Platte, Neb. canteen. This canteen ended up feeding and providing a place of comfort to all the men headed across country to fight in World War II. Each week, our culinary team volunteers are led by Culinary Director/Executive Chef Christopher Griffin in preparing a complimentary lunch open to all active duty and Veteran men, women and their immediate families.

This nutritious lunch is served in a welcoming environment to men and women of all service eras. Canteen is an opportunity for us to engage the local community. We love to work with families to establish mutually beneficial relationships.

Supporting our local farmers is crucial to a healthy community. We are always open to new partnerships. While every Canteen is a way for us to honor service men and women of all eras, we like to offer the opportunity to host Memorial Canteens. We will prepare his or her favorite meal, feature pictures and a pamphlet telling their life story and dedicate words to their memory. This is a way to honor a fallen friend or family member within the local military community.

What better way to meet and talk with your fellow Veterans than over a delicious brunch? Grab a cup of coffee, eat a wholesome meal and enjoy the company of your brethren. Join us for our annual Easter and Mother's Day brunches. Other brunches are scheduled periodically throughout the year. View our calendar for upcoming dates.
