The Lowell Milken Center will be hosting the inaugural Stubby Day from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 29, at the city park in downtown Fort Scott. This fun-filled day is in honor of one of the Center’s unsung heroes, Sergeant Stubby, who happens to be the most decorated animal in American military history. We are encouraging the community to bring their families, four-legged loved ones and friends to celebrate.
Stubby’s story will be told at 9:30 a.m. while area businesses/vendors will be present: Lee’s Paws and Claws, Gypsy Soul Rescue, Fort Scott High School Thespians for face painting, Kenny Felt Photography pet portraits from 9:30 10:30 a.m., Kinede’s Cakes with special desserts and the City of Fort Scott. There will be games, prizes and beverages.
Sergeant Stubby saved many lives while braving countless battles in WWI and we want to share his story with you.
