I cannot believe it's Memorial Day weekend already. While many of us would normally gather with family and friends to remember our service personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our loved ones who have passed, we can still honor them. We can remember the good times we shared with them, the wisdom and love they provided to us and thank God for the gift of their lives.
Although our Memorial Day cookouts may be moved to the back burner this year, we can still enjoy great food and support our vets at two upcoming events.
Duryea Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1227's kitchen is open for takeout Wing Night from 3 to 8 p.m. Thursdays at the post, 492 Stephenson St. You can call 570-457-4434 as early as 2 p.m. Thursdays to place an order. I urge you to place orders quickly due to the demand for VFW wings. They sell out each week!
You'll be all set for Sunday dinner as the Duryea Sons of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 585 hosts a jumbo stuffed shell dinner at noon Sunday, May 31, at the Brennan Regan Post, 329 Main St. Each dinner is $8.50 and includes four jumbo stuffed shells with homemade sauce, salad, dinner roll and dessert.
