Annual dinner brings people together to thank veterans

Written by

MILO - A Veterans Day dinner brought nearly 200 people out Monday in Milo.

 

The annual Three Rivers Kiwanis Veterans Day Dinner has been serving up meals to honor the holiday for nearly 15 years.

 

The event is a way for the Kiwanis Club to say thank you to veterans from all branches of military service.

 

Veterans and their families enjoyed fellowship, musical entertainment provided by the Elementary Veterans Singers, and of course, a great meal prepared by Elaine's Cafe in Milo with help from several Kiwanians, and the PVHS Key Club.

 

"They've served their country, so we need to serve them," said Brenda Kelley, the Lt. Governor for the Kiwanis Div. 2. "We need to show we're proud of them and we appreciate everything they've done for us."

 

A special ceremony honoring prisoners of war and those missing in action was also hosted Monday by American Legion Post 41.
