For years, the Vashon Eagles has honored all who have served our country by providing a free meal to our veterans and this November 11th, we are pleased to be able to continue that tradition. As in the past, please see the bartender on duty to obtain a dinner ticket.
I cannot stress this enough; please register for or purchase a dinner ticket by Monday, November 8th to guarantee your dinner availability. Priority dinner service will be given to members who have obtained their dinner ticket in advance. Walk-ins on November 11 will be able to purchase dinner only if there is enough food to accommodate those who have pre-purchased/reserved their meal. All veterans are eligible for a free meal and their spouses and caregivers are eligible for a discounted dinner. All others are welcome to purchase a dinner ticket at full price and join us in our thanks and celebration of our service members. Dinner tickets will be available at the bar beginning on November 1st. I will post an update with details of the dinner on Sunday, October 31st. Veterans who are unable to come to the club may reserve their meal by phone. Please note that if you are a spouse, caregiver, or regular member, you must purchase your dinner ticket in-person. No phone-in reservations for dinners that must be purchased. In the meantime, I welcome your suggestions regarding what to serve! In the past it has typically been meatloaf and mashed potatoes and I am happy to continue that tradition, but if you'd like to change it up a bit, please let me know over the next few days!
We understand that many of our veterans are elderly or may have compromised immunity and so may not feel comfortable with in-person dining. I am currently looking for volunteers willing to give a brief moment of their time to deliver meals to any of our veterans who request this accommodation. If you would like to show your appreciation for their sacrifices by being available to deliver a veteran's meal, please let me or Megan know. Your help is valued and appreciated!
