To help brighten the day of our
Veterans & say “Thanks, hope you’re doing OK”, Perth Legion is
offering our Veterans a meal of their choice from a local restaurant
& then picking it up & delivering it to their front door step around
5:00 – 5:30PM on a day of their choosing.
Besides wanting to show our appreciation for their service & be sure
they are doing well, we want to help support our local restaurants
that might be struggling with the unknown future facing them during
these challenging & uncertain times.
