This Friday evening, November 9th at 6:30 at the Charles Mack Citizens Center, my Mooresville/South Iredell Exchange Club will be hosting a free dinner honoring our Veterans, Active Military and Clergy as part of our One Nation Under God program. If you, a family member or friend are a veteran we would love for any and all veterans or active military members to join us for a wonderful dinner and evening of appreciation for all of the untold sacrifices which they have and will continue to make.
This year we are truly honored to have Bill Lowrance as our guest speaker. Mr. Lowrance, a World War II veteran, is going to share some of his stories about being on the beach of Omaha and a number of other battles that he survived. I have been told that it has only been in the last several years that he has even been able to speak about his experiences in some of the most horrific battles of the entire war. We are honored that he is willing to share with us!
Last year I sat with a veteran of World War II, The Vietnam War and Desert Storm and listened as they, with great humility and almost reluctantly, shared some of their experiences. But, when it came time to acknowledge each branch of the military they stood with such pride and a sense of comaradarie.
Please email me ASAP so that I can put your name(s) on our list and ensure that we have plenty of food! All veterans, active military, and clergy are welcome!
