Atlas Pipeline hosted the first Annual Tree of Heroes Celebration Dec. 4 at the SpirtBank Event Center, 10441 S. Regal Blvd. Atlas employees chose to forgo their annual Christmas party this year to help the company fund the Tree of Heroes evening.
The event was a special thank you to active and prior service members of the United States Armed Forces. In recognition of the service member’s sacrifices, Atlas Pipeline provided a complimentary dinner and entertainment. The Tree of Heroes was decorated in the veterans’ honor and in recognition of their continued commitment to the protection of America.
