Fred “Fritz” Scherz, Jr., Councilman on the Verona Town Board, will hold his 9th Annual Thank You
Dinner for all Town of Verona Veterans and their families on Sunday, November 11th from 5pm to 6pm at the Verona Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6811 (4928 Spring Rd.) in Verona.
“I truly appreciate Veterans and thought this would be a nice way to thank them once again,” said Scherz.
“The last eight years I’ve held this event, there was a good turnout. It is always great to see Veterans of various ages attend, share their stories with each other, and even make some new friends. This year, though, we will miss a friend of the Scherz family for many years, WWII Veteran, Joe Smith who passed away earlier this year. I want folks to know that as with last eight years I’ve held this dinner, no town funds are being used for it whatsoever as this is not a government-based event. Rather, I am personally covering the cost of this dinner because it is something I thought would be nice to do again. My family always looks forward to this annual event. As with the last couple of years, Frank Buda (friend of the Scherz family for over 40 years!) will play accordion and play a special tune for each branch of the military. So, if you’re a Veteran from the Town of Verona, I sure hope to see you and your family at my Thank You Dinner!”
While reservations are not required, Veterans who plan on attending are asked to contact Fritz at:
email@example.com and/or (315) 363-3509 by November 8th so he can better plan on how much food to have. Plus, if folks have any food allergies, Fritz wants to plan accordingly.
