I include this event each year thanks to Nita Yeager.

I have had such positive feedback on what a great time this event is, not only hearing from veterans, but from community members as well.

It is a wonderful experience to be able to listen to local veterans what they experienced. This is a learning event for your children, so bring them along and meet some of the men and women who fought for freedom.

You will also be supporting the Veterans Meals on Wheels Program.
