Veterans Day Commemoration
You are cordially invited to join us as we honor the service and sacrifice of our military veterans and celebrate our Club's rich heritage of military service to our country during our 2019 Annual Veterans Day Program.  Our program will be held during our regular weekly meeting on Thursday, 7 November 2019 at 0700 hours (7:00am) at Joy Lutheran Church.
We invite you to come dressed for the occasion with your military uniform items or other military/branch of service apparel.  We also encourage you to bring items of military memorabilia as well as photos of yourself during your military service.  We will have tables set up to display and share your military keepsakes & photos.
Please feel free to invite family & friends - particularly veterans.  All veterans, current military and military families will be recognized for their service during the program.
Please contact Mike Endres or Ben Martin with any questions.
