We'd like to draw special attention that this is a longer, brunch meal period rather than lunch as initially planned. We received a call from a veteran that let us know that our free lunch did not allow much time for everyone to eat and then enjoy the parade and a special ceremony at the Cole Land Museum. We were happy to start earlier to allow everyone an opportunity to enjoy the day's activities and a wonderful meal.'
