Our 2016 VETERANS APPRECIATION DINNER was another huge success. The Prime Rib was delicious, our hall was full of veterans and their guests and everyone had a wonderful evening. During this event, we had planned to honor several WWII veterans with certificates commemorating their Military Service but they were unable to attend. Post Commander, Alfred Reiner was not going to let that interfere with completing this "mission." He hand-delivered these certificates to these "special Vets" at Quails Hollow living center. They were thrilled! A magnificent ending to a grand evening. Thanks to all who made this a fun event for all.
