HyVee once again honored America’s Veterans with a spectacular buffet breakfast and desserts.
The Post 1776 Color Guard was on hand as was a local school choir Encore from Lakeville South. And what voices! It is always nice to see today’s youth engaged in productive and positive activities.
Thank you HyVee. It was again, another great experience.
Post 1776 celebrated Veterans Day in grand fashion. Veterans ate free from noon to 3pm. The banquet room of Post 1776 was packed with Veterans and their guests. A big thank you to all who served us today including the ladies Auxiliary and the Boy Scouts. Thank you all for making our day great.
There were also plenty of door prizes and meat raffles to entertain everyone throughout lunch.
Our General Manager Linsey Green is moving on. Linsey and her husband have purchased a bar and grill of their own in Jordan MN. The Station will soon be under new management.
Linsey came to us from the Vivo restaurant and has done an outstanding job for us here at the Legion and we wish her nothing but the best in her new endeavor.
Duff Duffina won a GOLD medal at the Senior World Games in the Hot Shot competition! Congratulations Duff!
Here at Post 1776 Veterans eat for free from Noon to 3pm. Guests $9.00.
Many other businesses offer our Veterans discounts or freebies such as meals on Veterans Day. If you visit these restaurants and businesses be sure to show your appreciation as they are doing for all of us. That includes tipping your server on the full price of the meal you receive.
Some of these offers start on the 10th of November but most take place on November 11th which is of course Veterans Day.
Remember at POST 1776 we will be serving a free meal to Veterans from noon to 3pm.
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to an amazing woman. Throughout this horrible disease she remained determined. Never lost her sense of humor and couldn’t stop talking about her granddaughter. We will miss you Lisa. The heavens have received a very special angel.
