The American Legion Post 352 and the Rotary Club of Blanco County will gather on November 11th, 6 p.m., at The Old 300 BBQ restaurant (Back Forty) for a dinner honoring all Blanco Veterans. Rotary President, Harvie Lindeman, and American Legion Commander, Carl Struck, will co-host, introduce and honor the attending Veterans.  All Blanco county veterans are invited.
The Veterans celebration and dinner will include the presentation of colors, followed by the Chaplain requesting attendees to join in prayer.  Each veteran will be asked to stand and be introduced.  As in the past, there will be veterans who represent various branches of country’s armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. Although each has worn different uniforms, all have one thing in common: each has taken and lived out an oath of service to our country…their pledge
The American Legion and Rotary have invited a speaker to conclude the evening who is both a veteran and Rotarian.  The American Legion and Rotary Club of Blanco County encourage all Veterans to attend this special evening in honor of Veterans Day and those who served.
