Church dinner honors veterans for Memorial Day

Published May 23, 2007



Chapel on the Hill United Church of Christ, 12601 Park Blvd., Seminole, will observe Memorial Day by inviting area veterans and their families to a free dinner at 5 p.m. Sunday.

The invitation is for veterans of all military branches of service who have served at home or overseas. The Rev. Bill Mulford, interim pastor at Chapel on the Hill and a veteran himself, hopes the gathering will let veterans know they are appreciated. He says the menu will include "SOS, " an item known to service personnel, and plenty of "real food." Reservations are required by Friday. Call the church at (727) 391-2919.

The church also will dedicate its new Memory Garden on Sunday after the 10 a.m. service. The ceremony will include the interment or re-interment of cremains and the dedication of bronze memorial plaques.
