Free Lunch Offered to Veterans and Their Families Saturday in Lynchburg
Lynchburg, VA - Veterans and their families were treated to a free lunch Saturday in Lynchburg.
Diuguid Funeral Service put on the event.
The luncheon was held at the American Legion on Greenview Drive.
Families were served hot dogs, hamburgers, and got to listen to some live music.
Organizers say they wanted a chance to give back to their community.
"I think we can't do enough for the veterans of this community. I think that we should show our love and respect for what they have done for our country, and that we are free as we are today," said Claudia Medure, with Diuguid Funeral Service.
Saturday's lunch was Diuguid's first time putting on the event, but organizers say they hope this is the first of many.
