Celebrating Veterans

Celebrating Veterans

As we celebrate Veteran’s Day tomorrow I thought I would share information about local celebrations and activities.

A great way to celebrate our Veterans and our local Veteran history is to visit the Veteran’s Memorial Museum located at 100 SW Veterans Way, in Chehalis.  This is a wonderful museum to browse through.  There’s lots of history and particularly  the stories of military service by local people.  Click HERE to learn more about the museum.  This weekend the museum is celebrating its 20th anniversary so go and enjoy the celebration.

To start off the community celebrations the Elks Lodge 2435 is offering a free Veterans dinner tonight at 5:30 at 216 S. Tower, in Centralia.  The dinner is free to veterans and $10 for non-veterans.  Reservations appreciated – call 360-669-0158.   A POW-MIA ceremony at 6:30 will follow dinner.

Tomorrow morning at 10 a.m., here at The Gathering Place, we are playing the documentary “Heroes on Deck”.  This is just after 9 a.m. Coffee Klatch and the documentary is about an hour long.  It is the story of the raising of World War II airplanes out of Lake Michigan.  Lake Michigan was the site of pilot training during WWII and this documentary does a noteworthy job of sharing this story.

Also, tomorrow there will be a Veteran’s Day Parade in Chehalis at 1 p.m.  The parade will  route down Market Street (the traditional Christmas Parade route).  The parade sponsors are encouraging all veterans to dress in their military uniforms and march in the parade.

After the parade there will be a BBQ dinner at the Veterans Museum.  Advance tickets at $15 each are available at the museum.

Also tomorrow, at 10:30 a.m., the local American Legion Post 17 is having their annual celebration.  Col. Ron Averill is guest speaker and The Centralia High School band will perform.

With this many ways to celebrate veterans there is something for everyone.
