This Friday will be Summer Appreciation Event for veterans. All veterans and their families, along with any service members on leave, are invited to attend the event.
Member of the Muskingum Chapter of Daughters of Revolution, Ellen Shaw, says that she hopes this event will show veterans how much they are appreciated.
Shaw said, “To show appreciation to the veterans and their families. Their families are included in the picnic.” Shaw added, “We would love to have them. There will be people there with information that helps veterans find out some of the organizations that help them.”
Do not let the heat scare you away from attending the event, there will be fans along with grilled food for all to enjoy.
Shaw mentioned, “Jerry and his crew from the American Legion Post 29 are going to be manning the grill so they will be cooking the hamburgers and hot dogs. We will have some entertainment. We will also have fans since it is going to be a hot day, so we are going to have fans to help keep it cool.”
The event will be held at the YMCA Park. Veterans can start gathering for the event on Friday, July 19th, at 11 a.m., and food will be served at 12 p.m.
