To honor those who have served in our nation’s armed forces, state Rep. Anthony DeLuca, D-Chicago Heights, is hosting a free Veterans’ Appreciation Picnic on Friday, July 10, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park, 19101 Halsted St. in Glenwood.
“Veterans made sacrifices for our safety and freedom that we must not take for granted,” DeLuca said. “They deserve our thanks every day, not just on special holidays and this picnic is sign of our community’s gratitude for their service.”
Veterans and their family members can come to Veterans Memorial Park at any time during the event.
Hot dogs and beverages will be served, and games like bingo will be played. DeLuca will be joined by leaders from local governments.
“I am looking forward to visiting with veterans from across our district,” DeLuca said.
Space is limited. To RSVP for the Veterans’ Appreciation Picnic, please call 708-754-7900 or send email to [email protected].
