Sat., Nov. 11 free event is open to public
Disabled veteran James Etter struggled to gain government benefits from injuries sustained in Vietnam and has been ever aware that there are many veterans out there who could learn by his eventual success in obtaining them. One way to do that is to gather veterans together, be it at the Veterans of Foreign Wars facilities or at special events.
Slated for Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11, the Magnolia Park United Methodist Church of Burbank and Pastor Chris Fracchiolla have offered their facility to bring together veterans and active military and members of the community for dinner and a fun evening of entertainment. There will be a live Elvis Tribute Show and a big screen movie—Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge—has been selected to show on the church’s giant 20’ screen and played in surround sound.
Also included is a delicious dinner from StoneFire catering. Only the first 100 to respond will be seated for the gourmet meal. The next 100 will enjoy theater seating only. Coffee and desserts will be provided.
Veterans and one guest can email ForOurVets@yahoo.com to make reservations now through October 15. After that date, the general public may book a free reservation based on remaining seating availability.
This event is free, supported by citizens and merchants in the community. Donations are still being sought to support this event and anyone can volunteer. To help out, or find out more, email: ForOurVets@yahoo.com. Magnolia Park United Methodist Church is located at 2828 W Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank.
