The annual Veteran’s Day Breakfast will be held on Saturday, November 10, in the ballroom at the Elks. Breakfast will start at 8:30 a.m. and will be free for all Veterans; all others attending will be $5.00 each. Anyone wishing to sponsor a Veteran’s meal is welcome to do so at the door that morning, or by contacting Dave Faulkner or Julie Crowe before the event.
The program will be the Elks Kentones and Company, who will present the musical cantata, “American Dreamers”, directed by Sue Fox Buroker.
Thanks again to our receiving the ENVSC Freedom Grant, we are able to offer a free field trip for area Veterans and their immediate families; this year, we will travel to the Civil War Museum in Tiffin, Ohio. The chartered bus will depart the lodge after the Veterans Day Breakfast that Saturday morning, November 10. After visiting the Museum, we will go out for an early supper and then visit the Tiffin Elks Lodge before making our way back to Kenton.
The bus will load at the Wayne Street entrance at 11:00 a.m., with departure set for 11:15; we should arrive back in Kenton by 6:30 p.m. If you know of a Veteran in an area care facility who is physically able to and would like to come to the breakfast and/or go on the field trip, please let Dave Faulkner or Julie Crowe know so we can arrange transport to and from the lodge, and assistance if necessary.
Plan to reserve your place on the bus as seating will be limited; a sign-up list will be posted starting October 1 on the bulletin board near the bar; deadline to sign up for the field trip is November 2.
Mark your calendars now for the Veteran’s Day Breakfast at the Lodge followed by the Field Trip to the Tiffin Civil War Museum on November 10!
