Glades County to honor veterans

Posted

MOORE HAVEN — The Glades County Republicans will host the annual Veterans Dinner on Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Ortona Community Center, 2086 Ortona Locks Road.

The menu will include Ortona’s famous recipe for Italian sauce over pasta, with salad, green beans, garlic bread, iced tea and a brownie.

This year, the annual event to honor local veterans will be a little different. Social distancing and other safety precautions will be observed. Due to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the dinner will be held outdoors with limited seating available in the park.

Veterans, especially those most at risk due to age or health issues, are encouraged to get their meals “to go.” A “drive-thru” will be set up so veterans do not even have to get out of their vehicles.

Meals will be carefully packaged in spill-proof temperature-retaining containers.

Each veteran may sign up for two free dinners — one for the veteran and one for a guest. Reservations must be made in advance.
Deadline to respond is Oct. 24, so organizers will know how many meals to prepare.

To RSVP, email to GladesRepublicans@gmail.com or.

mamzellerox@hotmail.com; send a text message to 863-885-1138; or,
Call 863-885-1138 or 863-675-8850.

The annual dinner is sponsored, provided and hosted by the Glades County Republican Executive Committee to honor U.S. military veterans who live in Glades County.

Ortona, Veterans, honored
