All veterans and a guest are invited to Davie County Senior Services’ first drive-through appreciation event in their honor on Thursday, Nov. 5.

For the past 24 years, veterans from all branches have attended the annual event hosted by Senior Services.

“Even though we cannot hold our traditional event, we still want to be sure our veterans know how much we appreciate their service”, said Kim Shuskey, senior services director.

Veterans will drive through the parking lot of senior services to pick up a meal from Chick-Fil-A.  They may take their meal home to enjoy, or pull into a parking space for a brief program, which will be broadcast over their FM car radio. All participants will stay in their car the entire time.  Masks are encouraged when driving through the line.

Veterans may bring a guest with them to this event. Food pickup will occur between noon and 12:30, with the program starting around 12:30 to 12:45 (depending on traffic).  All participants must pre-register by Nov. 2.

To register, or for more information about any of the programs and services offered by Davie County Senior Services, call 336-753-6230.
