Belmont County Farm Bureau President Rusty Winland would like to extend an invitation to all area veterans to attend a Veterans Salute meal on Friday, Nov. 9 at the KFC and A&W Restaurant of Barnesville.

The Belmont County Farm Bureau and the KFC and A&W Restaurant will be providing a free meal to local veterans in honor of the service they have provided to our country.

The meal, along with dessert, will be served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and veterans are invited to come anytime during those hours. This is an opportunity to honor our veterans with a small token of appreciation. Plans are to have a registration of all the veterans that attend so there can be a published "thank you" at a later date. Doan Ford will again be sponsoring a radio remote broadcast from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the restaurant.

"Our veterans have provided an invaluable service to us and our country. We would like to say thank you by providing them with a meal," said Winland.

All area veterans are encouraged to attend and enjoy a free meal.
