The dinner and show are co-sponsored by Youth 4 Troops and the Valor Belles. Both are non-profit organizations that support active duty and veterans in the community.
Guests will also have a chance to walk the main school hallway that has been turned into a Wall of Honor for local families. Students, staff and families submitted photos of loved ones currently serving as well as those who have served in the armed forces. Informational signs, images and items are also displayed to help students relate to history on a personal level.

After a spaghetti dinner, the Variety show will begin at 6:40 p.m.
Over 50 students will be performing. The acts will include: Armed Forces Medley and Color Guard, USO Style Dance team, third grade music performance among others.
Tres Rios students have been collecting donations to give to Youth 4 Troops for holiday care packages to be sent to men and women overseas. Youth 4 Troops will have booth areas allowing guests to write letters to send in the care packages as well as draw patriotic designs on the boxes.
