A Powell River man is honouring veterans.
Brian Oakes with Inclusion Powell River says he’s organized a special veterans appreciation dinner next month.
“It started with me when I lived in Squamish. I did it for the veterans there [in Squamish] and I just moved here [Powell River] in July of last year. and I thought well, I got affiliated with the Kelly Creek Community Church and wanted to do an outreach program so I thought why not do the same thing here in Powell River at the Legion.”
Oakes notes the event will feature a full turkey dinner and is for veteran’s only, who have served and those who are still serving today.
“There’s no tickets that are being sold for the event. All you have to do is just show up at the Hall here in Powell River on Marine Avenue.”
The veterans appreciation dinner goes at the Legion in Powell River on November 4th.
