The location will be the main lobby of the Lecanto VA Clinic (2804 W Marc Knighton Ct, Lecanto FL 34461).

Please arrive between 1130 & 1145, so we can begin at promptly 12pm.

If you have any items for the table, please bring them to the September meeting or you can drop the items off at the clinic prior to the meeting. I already have the table, table covering, a piece of plate glass to cover the table and 2 small table flags (1 American & 1 POW). We need the plate, wine glass, crystal bud vase, red ribbon & red rose, plastic lemon, a white candle (will not be lit), and Mr. George is going to supply the salt substitute. For those that were not at the past meeting, the salt substitute is a vial of sand from Omaha beach in Normandy. VA Public Affairs will handle the press release and I will make up a flyer for social media and to hang in the clinic & VSO office. Will discuss the fine details at the September membership meeting.
