Remembering our veterans

Posted11/8/2013 9:59 AM

It turns out Saturday, Nov. 9, will be another opportunity when we can honor our veterans.

St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in West Dundee will honor past and present veterans at 7 p.m. at the church, 845 W. Main St.


It's an event that will give you a chance to thank the veterans in attendance for their service. You can also you write in a registry those who you'd like to honor. During the program, the veterans named in the registry will be recognized as well.

For more information, call the church at (847) 426-2217.

Also Saturday, Culver's of Carpentersville will donate 11 percent of all of its sales to VetsRoll, a nonprofit organization that takes veterans from World War II and the Korean War on free, four-day trips to Washington, D.C., every spring to see their respective memorials.

The eatery will also donate 100 percent of its profits from its "patriot sundae," which is one scoop of vanilla custard topped with blueberries, strawberries and strawberry sauce.

In addition, from 1 to 2 p.m., the eatery will hold a Salute to Veterans ceremony just outside of its store.

The Carpentersville Culver's is at 8000 Miller Road. For information, call (847) 649-3222.
