Annual Veterans Breakfast and Vietnam Veterans Day Recognition

3/29/2019 - 3/29/2019

Commemorative Partner: Village Hospice Lee's Summit, MO
Point of Contact: Angel Gregory

Event Location: 1800 NW O’Brien Road, Lee's Summit, MO, 64081
Description: Host annual breakfast for veterans, both on our campus and in our community. Information on a wide variety of veteran-beneficial topics will be available by local community members and businesses, and our guest speaker will be Vietnam veteran and ONE YOUNG SOLDIER author, Gary DeRigne. The high point of the event is when we recognize each group of Veterans. In the past, for this part of our event, the DAR have done a special pinning ceremony for the Vietnam Veterans in attendance. As Village Hospice is now a Commemorative Partner, it will be our honor to take on that role this year. Not only do we thank and honor the Vietnam Veterans in attendance, but also the surviving spouses and family members. ***Question: We don't know how many surviving spouses might attend, as we haven't even begun taking RSVPs yet. I've requested 10, based on previous years' experience - any guidance will be helpful. Thank you!
