Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., Councilman on the Verona Town Board, will hold his seventh annual thank you dinner for all town of Verona veterans and their families Saturday, Nov. 11, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Verona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6811 (4928 Spring Road) in Verona.
“I have fond admiration for veterans and thought this would be a special way to thank them again,” said Scherz. “The last six years I’ve held this event, there was a good turnout. It is always 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 six 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.
“My family always 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!”
