The AMVETS post 81 Honor Guard of North Fort Myers will also present the colors for the National Anthem during the pre-game ceremonies.
North Fort Myers basketball legend Brad Branson, formerly of the Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Indian Pacers and now currently a teacher and coach at North Fort Myers High School, will throw out a first pitch at the game on behalf of the North Fort Myers community.
Also, to be honored at the game will be World War II and 92- year-old North Fort Myers Veteran Stan Pavlock, an AMVETS Post 81 member as our special veteran of the game.
This is an evening you do not want to miss, and the weather should be great.

The North Fort Myers Civic Association has proudly purchased one of these benches to help in this very special cause.
