A tavern in Fruita is putting together an amazing tribute to our veterans, and they want your photos. If you or someone in your family is a past or present member of the military, please participate in this awesome endeavor.

Koko's Tavern, a fairly new business just off the town square in Fruita, is taking the helm with this project. If you wish to participate, it couldn't be easier.

Get Your Photo On This Amazing Tribute Wall

To get your photo on the wall, all you have to do is:

  • Provide a 4 X 6 print of your veteran
  • Include their name on the photo
  • Deliver the photo to Teresa or one of the fine crew members at Koko's Tavern at 152 S. Mesa

Koko's Will Take Care of the Rest

Koko's is on the ball. All you need to do is drop off the 4 X 6 print with the veteran's name written on it. Koko's will provide the frame. Don't worry, according to Teresa, they have plenty of frames.

In Addition to the Wall

Koko's is also sponsoring R.E.D. Fridays. R.E.D. stands for "Remember Everyone Deployed. To get involved with this, simply wear a red shirt on Fridays. If you visit Koko's on a Friday, you'll notice the employees are dressed in red and the bar will be lit red.

This is Awesome

I've known other restaurants in the valley to do similar tributes. The old Lois' location, and now its offspring, Sunshine Restaurant, do a military tribute with photos of local vets. This latest effort from Koko's sounds incredible.

Be One of the First

I'm heading down to Koko's tonight (Friday) with my red shirt and 4 X 6 prints of my great-grandpa in World War I and my Grandpa in World War II.

Teresa said she has plenty of frames, so let's see to it they all get utilized. Koko's recently shared this post on social media.
