New this year during Spark!Fishers, we will transform the Fishers City Hall Auditorium into Veterans’ Hall to celebrate our local heroes. We are currently seeking veterans who are interested in showcasing their military memorabilia, and/or their artistic talents through hands-on activities and demonstrations. You are NOT required to stay for the entire Spark!Fishers event to participate.
Please submit your interest and hours of availability to firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-567-8568.
