Primrose of Mankato honored our veterans with a special Veteran’s Day Luncheon. Eleven veterans and their spouses joined us and we had delicious catered food including herb roasted chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, grilled vegetables, and gourmet cupcakes. During the lunch we listened to patriotic music and each veteran was presented with a certificate of appreciation.

While enjoying our delicious meal, each veteran shared with everyone what years they were active in the service and where they served our country. Many stories were shared, about their experiences and the places the service took them. Some of the spouses shared their stories about their veteran leaving or coming back from the war, or how they met!

Later that afternoon a local group, the Vine Singers, came and sang us a variety of patriotic songs. All of the residents enjoyed this and everyone was tapping their feet to the music. It was a great day honoring all of our veterans that live here at Primrose. Thank you for your service and to those still serving our country!
