any WWII, Korean and any Disabled Vets regarding our upcoming July 4th Flying Pancakes Celebration at Wayzata Depot at 402 Lake St E, Wayzata, MN (8 am until noon) where we honor our wonderful veterans. Could you please email out the attached flyer to any veteran your amazing organization honors? The more honor we give to these war heroes, the better! They deserve it!!
At our July 4th breakfast, we serve free pancakes to all veterans!! (It’s $7 per plate for all others). If any WWII or Korean vets can attend this free and fun breakfast, could you please ask them to please RSVP by calling a me (952-353-4645). I’d like to get from them a short summary regarding their war service which will be read during a short Ceremony (10:00a,) where we personally recognize the WWII and Korean Vets. We would like the WWII and Korean vets to please check in with me at Wayzata Depot by 9:30 am.
(Although all veterans are warmly welcomed and will get a free breakfast, we will only read the bios of the WWII and Korean vets. )
We encourage all the disabled vets and WWII vets to come with a family member or friend to assist them. Parking is tricky! A fun part of the morning: There will be a musket salute every 30 minutes by the 7th Pennsylvania Regiment of Revolutionary Actors.
