Three generations of soldiers sat around a table together sharing their memories Saturday night.
They didnâ€™t serve in the same branch of the U.S. military and two of them didnâ€™t know each other before the night began, but their service to their country made them brothers.
Volunteers from Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 8445, the postâ€™s menâ€™s and womenâ€™s auxiliaries and community donors helped bring 175 veterans and their guests together for a special dinner and evening in their honor at the VFW.
For two Wapakoneta businessmen, taking 10 months to organize and coordinate one day of fun for the Wapakoneta area is worth all the days they and their supporters contribute as they make local veteransâ€™ lives easier and more pleasant.
The Womenâ€™s Civic League of Wapakoneta hosted the third annual â€śShowcase of Homes,â€ť an event where three Wapakoneta homes opened their doors to the community for a view of the interior remodeling and designs.
WCL member Edna Rayburn said each of the three showcased houses coincidentally were featured in the garden showcase held earlier in the year. Since guests had an outside view, many came back for a view inside the house, as well.
