Area veterans will have a couple of opportunities to be recognized and feted in conjunction with Veterans Day.
The men’s department at Word Alive Revival Center will host a BBQ lunch between noon and 2 p.m. Nov. 9 at the church, located at 2202 Hwy. 49 in Wiggins.
“We just want to say thank you for your service and sacrifice,” said Daniel Whaley, one of the event’s organizers. “I would like to make this an annual event for our veterans.”
Attendees will be able to enjoy BBQ chicken, baked beans and corn-on-the-cob prepared by the men’s department and dessert compliments of the ladies department.
At 8 a.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, veterans can have breakfast at the First United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center.
The annual event is sponsored by the Bank of Wiggins and put on by the Stone Middle School Student Council.
