On Saturday, the Salvation Army's Echo Grove Camp in Addison hosted a fun-filled Military Appreciation Day. To salute them for their service and sacrifices, U.S. veterans and their family members were treated to an entire day of shooting, boating, climbing, swimming and other outdoor activities. About 250 folks attended.

Founded in 1921, Echo Grove consists of 188 acres and is located on Lakeville Lake.
