Vestal Elks Lodge ‘Honor and Remember’ Our Veterans With Donation Drive
I'm sure most of us know by now but Thursday, November 11th is Veterans Day. It's a day to honor the men and women who have served in the armed forces. We should honor them every day but especially on Thursday.
I always thank a veteran but I wish there was something more that I could do. If you feel the same way, then here is something that you can do that can help them, even past Veteran's Day.
The Vestal Elks Lodge, 2071 Vestal Parkway is having an "Honor and Remember" veterans donation drive event on Thursday from 5:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. They are collecting donations for the Oxford Veterans Home and nearby nursing facilities.
