Blazer invites vets to lunch Nov. 9
Paul G. Blazer High School cordially invites all military veterans and active-duty personnel for a Veterans Day appreciation lunch in your honor on Friday, Nov. 9. The luncheon will begin at 10:30 a.m. and take place in the gym lobby. There will be a brief ceremony of appreciation followed by lunch served by our JROTC instructors and cadets.
A display of past military weapons as well as military vehicles will be available for all to view throughout the day. All those who wish to attend are asked to contact the school at (606) 327-6040 to RSVP by Nov. 8. An RSVP is not required to attend; it will simply be used to help us anticipate how many will be in attendance. We look forward to seeing all veterans and their families on Nov. 9.
