4th annual Columbia picnic raises funds for wounded veterans

COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - Veterans Day activities have continued into the weekend.

In Columbia Saturday, an annual Veterans Picnic and Car Show was held at the Columbia Water Park.

It was a fundraiser for Wounded Minutemen of Mississippi.

More than 50 cars and military vehicles were on display.

There was also plenty of food and live entertainment.

"Every year gets bigger," said Mark Retcho, chairman of the Veterans Picnic Committee. "Last year, we gave $4,000, the year before that $3,000, $2,000 the year before that. We're hoping to reach $5,000 this year. It's a worthy, worthy cause."

This was the fourth year for the picnic.
