Eleva (WQOW) — A barn in Eleva is bringing awareness to wounded veterans by transforming their corn maze in a special way.
Every year, Schultz’s Country Barn creates a corn maze in the fall for people to enjoy. The owners said this will be their last maze and they wanted to make it impactful.
This year, they designed the Wounded Warrior Project logo in the corn field.
Carlene Schultz, the owner of the barn, said she has worked with the Wounded Warrior Project for years and thought it would be a great way to inform people of all the good work the charity does.
Schultz said typically she fills the maze with trivia questions, but this year she will share facts about the Wounded Warrior Project.
“This year I have informative things about wounded warriors because a lot of people probably don’t know a lot about this,” Schultz said. “It has a lot of information about how you can give, what it does, how it helps military families, not only just the wounded warrior himself but the whole family.”
Schultz said this year’s corn maze will be their largest yet, covering eight acres.
The maze opens for the season Saturday. The cost is $8 for adults and $6 for children. Admission is free for anyone with a military ID.
Part of the proceeds from the corn maze will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
