Veterans Day celebration

Veterans Day is Thursday, Nov. 11. This year the Roanoke Inn, the Mercer Island VFW Post 5760 and other sponsors are hosting an all-day party to honor veterans.

The fun begins at the Roanoke with dollar pints (all day for Bud and Bud Light), swing music on the Juke Box and, of course, food. Then the fun moves across the street to the VFW Keewaydin Clubhouse with an open house between 3 and 5 p.m. with root beer floats, courtesy of Aljoya.

After a community toast to veterans at 5:30 p.m., a buffet dinner will be served, featuring favorite dishes from the 1940s and music from the Raretones. At 7 p.m. there will be a performance by the East Side Swing Dance group. RSVP for dinner at or 232-5413.
