LWC to Hold 21st-Annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon on Friday

COLUMBIA, KY - The Lindsey Wilson College community will hold its 21st Annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. CT on Friday, Nov. 10, at the VFW Post 6097, 500 Greenhills Drive, Columbia, Kentucky. The luncheon is free and open to all area veterans and their spouses. 

A special recognition ceremony will be held for Columbia Walmart and the Academy Team. The meal will be prepared by the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center. Lindsey Wilson College students and staff will be on hand to serve the meal. 

"What started as a small gathering 21 years ago now hosts more than 150 local veterans and their families," said LWC Dean of Students and event coordinator Chris Schmidt. "This event is one of the best days of the year for LWC. It's an opportunity for the College community to show gratitude and honor the service and sacrifice of our local veterans. We are pleased it has become an anticipated annual event for the community."

The luncheon started in 2003 as part of the college's centennial celebrations. It is coordinated by LWC's Office of Student Services.
