Vets need to sign up today for luncheon

Local veterans planning to attend an appreciation luncheon held in their honor later this month need to register by the end of today. As of 4 p.m., only 49 people had registered, a disappointingly low number to organizers.

“We’re having a hard time getting people to call in,” said Rev. Lucy Tedrick, who is helping to organize the event. “We need to know by Thursday how many people are coming so we can order the food.”

On Saturday, June 25, Marion Church of God on Fords Ferry Road will be offering a free noon meal to anyone in Crittenden County who has worn the uniform of the U.S. military. There is no charge to attend and spouses are invited. The meal will be catered by Conrad’s Food Store, with drinks and desserts furnished by the church.

To reserve a spot, call Tedrick at (270) 965-3269 or Bill and Marlene James at (270) 965-2931.
