“When we were able to do that back on Veterans Day of this past year that meant a lot to a lot of people. And it’s going to be incorporated into our Memorial Day service Saturday morning,” Ullman said.
The event will also feature a food drive for the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 32 food pantry. You can provide non-perishable items for donations.
The event will be going on from nine in the morning to three in the afternoon this Saturday.
