Bowman Estates of Danville showed our appreciation to local veterans by providing a buffet-style breakfast for them.

During the event, we also had drawings for several prizes that ranged from Tervis tumblers to a $25 gift card and a Yeti cooler.

We also were able to pass out thank you bags to each veteran. With help from Mrs. Winland’s 3rd grade class at Salt Fork Storm Elementary and Mrs. Hoewing’s 2nd grade class at Robeson Elementary, we were able to add a letter and art work from students.

As you can imagine, this surprise brought huge smiles to the veterans, especially the ones who live at our community. The sentiment behind the handmade drawings meant a lot. It showed our local veterans that they have not been forgotten and showed them that they are supported by their local community.

So, be sure to say thank you to your local veterans throughout the year.
