The Fayetteville area has hosted Heroes Homecoming since 2011. All associated events recognize the service and sacrifice of our brave veterans.


The communities of Cumberland County created Heroes Homecoming as a way of showing recognition and appreciation to all veterans for their courage, their sacrifice, and everything they do to defend this country’s freedom – now and forever. The Fayetteville area has always had a unique bond with veterans, as the point of departure and return for hundreds of thousands of soldiers


In keeping with this year's Fayetteville Heroes Homecoming theme, this event is open to active-duty military personnel and veterans who have served as military medical professionals and their families.


Fishing is a great way to bring families together to create lifelong memories. Our workshop is designed to teach families with children 7 years old and older, the basic skills needed to go fishing. If you have never gone fishing before, this workshop will help get everyone started on the path to creating an outdoor adventure and cherished fishing memories.  This workshop is an active hands-on learning experience for all family members to include fishing on the Pechmann Center’s stocked ponds. During this 3 hour workshop, families learn:

  • To cast a spin-cast outfit
  • How to set up a fishing outfit for fishing
  • How to tie basic fishing knots
  • How to collect bait
  • How to catch a fish
  • About sustainable Catch and Release fishing methods
  • How to properly handle a fish
