COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson
College community will hold its annual Veterans Appreciation
Luncheon on Nov. 12.
The luncheon begins at 11 a.m. CT on Tuesday, Nov. 12, in
Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, 430 Helen Flatt
Drive. The luncheon is open to veterans and their spouses or a
guest, along with veterans' widows and widowers. There is no charge
to attend the luncheon, but guests are asked to RSVP by contacting
the LWC Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (270) 384-8400.
This year's luncheon will include a special presentation
by Richard Powers of Elizabethtown, Ky. A retired Army sergeant,
Powers has created sculptures that honor a dozen Medal of Honor
recipients. His latest tribute is to Kentuckian Dakota Meyer,
who received the Medal of Honor in 2011. Powers' tribute to Meyer
will be on display at the luncheon.
This is the 11th consecutive year LWC has held the
luncheon. Sponsored by the LWC National Alumni Association, it started in
2003 as part of the college's centennial celebrations.
The annual event is not held on Veterans
Day so it does not conflict with community celebrations on that
"What started as a small, informal luncheon has developed
into one of the highlights of the Lindsey Wilson school year," said
LWC Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management
Dean Adams, who is an LWC alumnus. "The
luncheon is a great way to honor those who served our nation during
both peace and war. Students always enjoy serving the veterans and
their guests because they learn a lot about what it means to be a
quiet hero and to lead by example."
The LWC Veterans Appreciation Luncheon will be held
at 11 a.m. CT on Tuesday, Nov. 12. The luncheon is free to all
veterans, veterans' survivors and a guest. Guests should RSVP by
contacting Lindsey Wilson at email@example.com or (270) 384-8400.
