John C. Gainous VFW Post 10069 and Auxiliary 10069 are planning a special ceremony commemorating Gold Star Mom Day at the Post's regular Sunday Breakfast on Sept. 26.
This year, the post and auxiliary plan to dedicate the program to the 13 soldiers who lost their lives to a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on August 26. There are now 13 new Gold Star Moms as a result of this tragedy.
Please plan to attend to honor these fallen heroes. Breakfast will be served from 9 a.m. to noon, menu items and prices as usual, with the program at 11 a.m. Eastern time.
The VFW, Auxiliary, and American Legion prepare and serve fresh cooked breakfasts at the Post on Trout Ave in Highland View every other Sunday year round.
