2017 TAKE A VETERAN TO DINNER

THE TENTH ANNUAL TAKE A VETERAN TO DINNER EVENT WAS HELD OCT. 22nd AT TUTOR HALL.  THE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE.   PAIR UP VETERANS WITH CIVILIANS AND INVITE THEM TO DINNER.   SOMETIMES THE CIVILIAN IS A FAMILY MEMBER, INCREASINGLY HOWEVER TWO STRANGERS ARE PAIRED.  OVER THE PAST DECADE NEW FRIENDSHIPS HAVE BEEN MADE AND A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT OUR VETERANS WERE WILLING TO SACRIFICE, AND WHAT THEY LOST IS FOSTERED.  TAKE A VETERAN TO DINNER IS ALWAYS HELD ABOUT A MONTH BEFORE REMEMBRANCE DAY.   IT WAS MY PLEASURE TO EMCEE THE DINNER AGAIN THIS YEAR.
