Invitation to the Military Families Dinner on November 12, 2009

by: Robert Allen Sunday, October 25th, 2009

Dear Livingston Residents,

For the past two years, Livingston residents have come to the Military Families Dinner to honor the 25 families in our town that currently have children serving in the military. Some of these service members are stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan, the Persian Gulf and all over the world. After listening to their stories, we were all so moved by the different way that these families lived each day – e-mails, military websites, news reports and the fear of an unexpected ring of the doorbell, that the HOMECOMING LIGHT in the Oval was dedicated in their honor. The plaque reads:

The light will shine until all our servicemen and women are safe at home and peace reigns throughout the world. LIVINGSTON CARES.”

The veteran organizations invite you to attend this dinner to show our Livingston families that we appreciate their sacrifices, and we support them in our hearts and prayers. The dinner will be held on Thursday, November 12th at 7:00 p.m. at Il Vicolo Restaurant located at 113 South Livingston Avenue in Livingston, NJ. Please plan to join us for a very special evening.

The cost to attend the dinner is $30 per person ($25 per person for veterans). If you cannot attend, a donation will be greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to “VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS – POST 2856.” To confirm your attendance, kindly RSVP by November 6th to Bunny Ratner at 973-992-3987. Checks should also be sent to Bunny Ratner, 57 Cornell Drive, Livingston, NJ 07039.

Most sincerely,

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2856
