For the third year in a row, the Champaign Family YMCA will host a complimentary brunch to honor local veterans. The Nov. 8 brunch will include pancakes and sausage made by veterans employed by the YMCA. Brunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. by YMCA staff and volunteers. All area veterans, their families, and families of veterans who have passed away are invited. Individual photos will be taken of all in attendance as a way to honor those who have served.
In addition to food and camaraderie, Brittney Cook will sing the national anthem at 10:30 a.m. The YMCA preschool classes will sing patriotic songs and lead everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Urbana resident Warren E. Vanscoy will receive special recognition. He was an Air Force sergeant 1942-1946 during WW II in North Africa.
