World War II Veterans Luncheon planned for June 21


Submitted

CROSSVILLE — The third luncheon of the year honoring World War II veterans will be held at 11:30 a.m. Friday, June 21 at Shoney's Restaurant in Crossville. These gatherings began more than one year ago, and organizers are interested in having veterans who have not attended one of the previous luncheons to attend this meeting.

More than 100 veterans of World War II who represent all military branches reside in Cumberland County. Those interested in joining their fellow servicemen and women are requested to contact hosts Bill and Nancy Oehlecker at 788-6222 or coordinator Ed Lewis at 335-8879 to register for the luncheon. As in the past, space is limited, so please call as soon as possible.

The program will include a guest speaker, as well as the awarding of many door prizes donated by local merchants. Readers are requested to inform any World War II veterans of this event. Veterans are encouraged to contact their fellow veteran friends and family members and invite them to the luncheon.
