In honor of all community members who have served in the Armed Forces, the Fox Valley Park District is hosting a Veterans Day Luncheon from noon to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 4, at the Prisco Community Center (150 W. Illinois Ave., Aurora).

The luncheon is free to veterans and will be catered by Upper Crust. Entertainment will be provided by Americana singer-songwriter Rick Pickren, who’s packing his guitars, banjos and harmonicas for a stars-and-stripes themed show rich in cowboy and rail history, lore and song.

 

In addition, veterans advocate Herschel Luckinbill will share information on the Honor Flight Chicago and Vets Roll programs and the many benefits they provide veterans. Prize drawings will take place as well.

“We hold this luncheon each year to honor and salute veterans for the freedoms and opportunities they’ve provided us through their dedicated service,” said Park District spokesman Jeff Long.

The luncheon fee for non-veterans is $7 per resident and $11 per non-resident. Advance registration by Nov. 1 is required for all attendees to assure seating.

In addition, the Fox Valley Park District has proclaimed November as Veterans Appreciation Month and is providing veterans unlimited visits to the District’s fitness centers at no charge. Veterans and their families enjoy free admission to Prisco, Eola and Vaughan fitness centers throughout November.

The complimentary fitness and luncheon apply to all veterans and active military, as well as members of the National Guard and Reserves. Participants need to show a valid military ID card.

 

For information on the Veterans Day luncheon and the free veterans fitness offers, call 630-859-8606.
