Veterans Day ceremony will open to the public; like last year, instead of a sit-down meal, bagged lunches will be handed out at Village Hall to take home. Also, there will not be a Church service this year. Several Veterans Day offers will still be available at local restaurants and stores. Tops Supermarkets sent us an announcement that they will be giving veterans 11% off grocery purchases. Applebee’s and a list of other restaurants will have specials; for more offers, refer to the link (if you have a computer):
