Verona Town Councilman Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., will hold his sixth annual Thank You Dinner for all town of Verona veterans and their families Friday, Nov. 11, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Verona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6811 (4928 Spring Rd.) in Verona.
“I have fond admiration for veterans and thought this would be a special way to thank them again,” said Scherz. “The last five years I’ve held this event, there was a nice turnout. It was great to see Veterans of various ages attend, share their stories with each other, and even make some new friends.
“Also, I want people to know that as with last five years I’ve held this dinner, no town funds are being used for it whatsoever as this is not a government-based event. Rather, I am personally covering the cost because this is just something I thought would be nice to do again. In fact, my family looks forward to this annual event. We even have a surprise special guest lined up to attend. So, if you’re a Veteran from the Town of Verona, I sure hope to see you and your family at my Thank You Dinner!”
