This year The Salvation Army is once again, honored to be hosting the 10th Annual Veterans Salute Open House to honor all veterans. We take seriously this awesome responsibility to thank, honor and to support these men and women who have made the ultimate personal sacrifice to defend the great blessings of freedom and personal rights that each of us enjoy today. We invite you to come out and join in this special celebration.
The day will be packed with all sorts of great things to do: 10 a.m. the American Legion will present a service honoring the past and present veterans followed by a display of classic cars and motorcycles. Trophies will be awarded. Tom McDonald from the Office of Veteran’s Affairs of Wayne County will be on hand as well as the Scranton Veterans Center to help with any questions. The Wayne Co Chamber will have a table loaded with information regarding all the local events directed toward veterans of Wayne County. Don’t forget to take a relaxing pontoon boat ride on beautiful Lake Ladore.
Music for the event will be provided by DJ “Rick Z – Pilot of the Airwaves.” Enjoyed fresh coffee and donuts supplied by The Salvation Army – if you have ever been in the service you know the SA knows how to make coffee. Don’t forget to stop by the flea market table there is always a bargain to be had.
A picnic lunch (free will donation) at noon will be provided for all who attend with good food and fellowship. After lunch Officer Dave Kaneski, of the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission will present his informative program, which is always a big hit.
