A very special day to honor our veterans

Posted on: October 24, 2017
Local veterans are honored at Honoring Our Veterans grill-out on Nov. 5.

Each year our HONORing Our Veterans cookout and celebration raises funds to send local military veterans on Honor Flights to see their military memorials in Washington D.C. This year's celebration is Sunday, Nov. 5, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Whitaker Elementary. Veterans eat free; entertainment and live music for everyone!

For non-veterans, lunch items range from 50 cents to $2.50. There will be face-painting and games for children, the opportunity to purchase American flags, and the privilege of thanking local veterans in person!

This is always an inspiring event that has raised enough funds to send 17 veterans on Honor Flights!
