Dakota Meyer to speak at LWC Veterans Luncheon
Event November 9, 2011, will be Ninth Consecutive Year Lindsey Wilson has held this luncheon
By Duane Bonifer
COLUMBIA, KY - The Lindsey Wilson College community will hold its annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, November 9. 2011/The speaker will be Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the Marine Corps veteran who received the Medal of Honor earlier this year from President Obama. The luncheon begins at 11amCT on November 9, 2011, in Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center. 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY. The luncheon is open to veterans and their spouses or a guest, along with veterans' widows and widowers. There is no charge to attend the luncheon, but guests are asked to RSVP by November 1 by contacting the Lindsey Wilson Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 2700- 384-8400.
This is the ninth consecutive year Lindsey Wilson has held the luncheon. The event is sponsored by the Lindsey Wilson National Alumni Association.
Lindsey Wilson started the luncheon in 2003 as part of the college's centennial celebrations. The annual event is not held on Veterans Day so that it does not conflict with community celebrations on that day.
"We started this luncheon as a way to show the college's appreciation to those individuals who have served our nation during both times of war and peace," said LWC Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management Dean Adams, who is an LWC alumnus. "In just a few years, the luncheon has become one of the more popular events on campus. It's also one of the LWC community's favorite events because faculty, students and staff enjoy interacting with veterans and thanking them for serving our country." -DUANE BONIFER
