WWII vets invited to luncheon


CROSSVILLE — The second luncheon of the year honoring local World War II veterans will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 25 at Shoney's Restaurant in Crossville. All veterans, spouses and other family members are invited and encouraged to attend this meeting. The program will again feature a guest speaker and numerous door prizes donated by local merchants. Organizers are particularly interested in having those World War II veterans who have not attended one of the group's previous lunches to register and attend. Reservations can be made by contacting hosts Bill and Nancy Oehlecker at 788-6222 or coordinator Ed Lewis at 335-8879. Space is limited, so readers are encouraged to call as soon as possible. A list of known World War II veterans is maintained by Lewis and new names are added at each luncheon. Readers who are acquainted with World War II veterans are requested to make them aware of the April 25 luncheon. These lunches will continue to be held at two to three month intervals throughout the year.
