The Burnet County Republican Women are hosting a patriotic celebration of veterans during the group’s regular meeting Thursday, Nov. 10, at 11:30 a.m. in the Reed Building, 402 E. Jackson St. in Burnet. Tickets are $15 and include a catered lunch.
“We’re looking forward to a good day,” club President Mary Jane Avery said. “I think, as you get older, you appreciate the sacrifices (veterans) made. Our freedom, our liberty, the fact that we’re able to vote is all due to the sacrifices of others who have gone before us.”
While dropping off food donations in October, Avery learned The Helping Center will need even more as Thanksgiving approaches. Club members and guests of the Thursday event are asked to bring H-E-B gift cards or boxed cake mix for the food pantry.
“We are asking our members to step up and bring donations so we can help feed our community through Thanksgiving,” Avery said.
