All veterans and their spouses, and veterans’ widows and widowers are invited to the annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner, which begins at 6 p.m. Nov. 8, in First Baptist Church gym. Each veteran will receive a souvenir as a thank you from host Wal-Mart for their service to their country. A meal and evening of entertainment will be free for veterans and their spouses, widows and widowers. Door prizes will also be drawn. 

Any veteran who has not in the past had their picture copied at Wal-Mart for their memorial wall is encouraged to do so by Nov. 7. Veterans can take their 5x7 picture of them in uniform, if available, to the store. It will be copied and displayed. The original will be returned to the veteran.
