We are asking your help to spread the news that Ojai Post 482 is sponsoring an all day event for Veterans. This is the first time we are launching this program and ask for your help in contacting your veteran members throughout the Valley to invite them to come and share. If you are a member of an American Legion post, or VFW or Elks where there are Veterans who come ...please let them know!
Here is some of the information disseminated to the newspapers and perhaps you can forward this information to anyone/everyone you know who might want to be included or have their veterans included. We welcome all branches of the military, retired or active duty.
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 482 of Ojai is proud to announce its upcoming plans for honoring our local servicemen and women on Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2015. This is our first year launching this event, which we hope will become an annual tribute!
The Post will be open from 7:00 a.m. (free breakfast to Veterans) until 5:00 p.m. to host Veterans and their families throughout the day. Members of American Legion and VFW Posts throughout Ventura County have been invited to come and share their memories and “treasures” with other Vets for the day, and there will be soups and desserts available for luncheon and snacks.
Nancy Hill, local supporter of Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, as well as many other services for Veterans, will display posters of Veterans both alive and deceased, and it is anticipated that many servicemen and women will be bringing scrap books, old uniforms, medals, and other items to share.
Ojai is known for its caring attitude to Veterans and all veterans and their families are invited to come and share in this special day. There is no cost to the Veterans and both young and old are invited to come and share in this special day.
