Veterans of Logan County, make your reservations for Nov. 4 celebration & dance

Send a link to a friend

[October 12, 2012]  Over 1,100 invitations have been sent to the veterans in Logan County for the 11th annual Veteran's Celebration and Recognition Dance, sponsored by the St. John United Church of Christ Youth Group. The event is planned for Nov. 4 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the American Legion in Lincoln.

Although invitations and a reply card have been sent to the veterans the group has addresses for, it is not too late for any veteran who did not receive an invitation to call in a reservation request to Tonita Reifsteck, 732-9796; the youth sponsors, Jonathan and Tami Pagel, 732-4500; or the church, 732-6957. Seating can then be arranged.

The evening will begin with a light meal served from 5 to 6 p.m. and a tribute to the various branches of service by the Don Smith Band, which will provide dance music from 5 to 7:30.

The youth along with their sponsors, the Pagels, plan and host fundraisers all year for this celebration to honor the veterans of Logan County or any veteran who was deployed from Logan County.

The St. John Youth Group will also honor the veterans of their church on Nov. 4 during the 10:30 a.m. worship service with a "Litany Remembering All Those Who Serve" and will present each veteran with a special gift.
