It was a real pleasure to host a special luncheon in honor of our veterans of war on Tuesday, November 8th. Here’s a snap shot of some of our dear friends and veterans from the Local VFW 3802. The veterans joined us for lunch, three of which also happen to be fellow members in our Kiwanis club! Thank you for your service, gentleman. We always enjoy having you as our guests and you are welcome to join us any time!
