NORWICH – The Chenango County American Legion Auxiliary will be sponsoring an afternoon of recognition for local veterans from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4 at the American Legion, Lt. Warren E. Eaton, Post 189 in Norwich.
In addition to a free luncheon for veterans, the gala will also feature networking opportunities with local veteran services providers, possible guest lectures from local and state legislators, and a special presentation of certificates of recognition to each veteran in attendance.
“We want to give a ‘thank you’ to all the veterans in the area who have served over the years,” said Auxillary member Mary Lou McAvoy. “And we want to let veterans out there know that we are here to help them ... we have a lot of younger veterans in the area who might have a lot of questions. We want to be able to help them answer those questions.”
