Lunches for veterans
RALPH WENZEL, LEFT, Commander of American Legion Post 14 in Vergennes, and Post Trustee Paul Paquin, right, present a $1,000 check to Joy Minns of the Seth Warner-Rhoda Farrand Chapter of the DAR recently. Minns’ husband Jeff is second from right. For the past five years the local DAR chapter has hosted a lunch in February to thank and honor our local Vietnam veterans for their service.
The DAR Chapter will earmark this check for future lunches and is very grateful for the generosity of the Legion.
As members of the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration Committee, the chapter distributes special lapel pins to all eligible Vietnam era veterans and to the spouses of deceased veterans. If you know of any local veterans who have not been invited to this lunch, please email Joy at jminns@ hotmail.com.
