Thank you to our active, reserve and retired veterans. We'd like to treat you to a $10 off a lunch or dinner on Monday, November 11. We open at 11am. No coupon or certificate is necessary. Just let your server know who you are. Thank you for your service.
For the rest of us, who want to share our appreciation in a productive way, I know of a local non-profit here in Franklin Park, Boucke's Battalion. Visit their website for details. We've collected items for their drive at the Inn and my daughter's Girl Scout troop has helped bake cookies that they send to the troops for Christmas. Her troop is helping them sort candy donations this year. Boucek's Battalion incurred over $8,000 in shipping costs last year to send care packages to our men and women serving in the military. Wow! That's a lot of postage.
The item drive is over but you still have time to bake cookies or help donate towards shipping costs. Details on how to help are here.
Here is one of my favorite veterans, my father. Big Bob:
