Members of the Washington Shrine Club took a photo with American Legion Post 25 representatives commander David Frederick, finance officer Paul Sands, and service officer Eddie Fisher as well as John Mason, commander of AmVets, recently to promote their upcoming free dinner for service men and women on Veteran’s Day, Friday, Nov. 11. Dinners for non-vets are $7 and will be held at the American Legion Post 25.


The Washington Shrine Club and American Legion Post 25 are coming together for the fourth year to serve free dinner to service men and women on Veterans Day.

The sponsoring groups are bringing this meal to veterans to salute all of those who have served in one of the nation’s military branches. The dinner will be held on Friday, Nov. 11 at the American Legion Post 25, located at 1240 US Route 22. Dinner will be served from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and there will be absolutely no charge for veterans. All non-veterans can purchase a meal for $7.

“We encourage all veterans to join us and we thank them for their service to our country,” Brian Tabit, president of the Washington Shrine Club, said. “It is just a small token of appreciation for what they have done. It is just a little something we can do to thank these veterans. I have traveled quite a bit this year and have paid for the meals of numerous service men because it goes to show we do appreciate them and it is just a great way to show them that appreciation.”

The event will have guest Ed Helt, the speaker at the past three dinners, who will speak at the conclusion of the dinner. For more information about the event, contact the American Legion at (740) 335-4990.
