"In naming this event, we chose Rendezvous for some of the sym- bolism it conveys, but the num- ber one thing we want to provide is an opportunity for veterans to connect with each other in a relax- ing, fun and welcoming environ- ment," said Brett Jagodzinski, a VA employee organizing the event. "During the fur trade era of the early nineteenth century, the 'Rendezvous' was an annual gath- ering where trappers traded their fur pelts for goods and supplies, and engaged in fellowship and camaraderie after a long, often lonely year spent trapping in the mountains," explained Jagodzin- ski. "In the military, a rendezvous point is often a prearranged meet- ing place where troops know they can meet up with one another if they get separated during battle. This event sort of blends both of those ideas together." Planned activities include live music concerts, food, and family games, Jagodzinski said. A variety of Veteran-focused VA informa- tion booths will also be available during the event. "The musical performers will be high quality, national tour- ing shows," Jagodzinski said. Per- formers will be announced on the St. Cloud VA's Facebook page at The event is open to all residen- tial Veterans, to Veterans through- out Central Minnesota, and their immediate families. Financial and volunteer sup- port is being provided by the Clearwater Legion Riders, Min- nesota Patriot Guard, Clearwater American Legion, Weber's Deck, and White Oak Realty.
