Dozens of veterans and their families gathered inside the town’s tourist information center for the annual event.

Organizer said the luncheon was their way of saying thank you to all of those who have served, and continue to serve our country.

“When veterans came back from Vietnam, there was not the atmosphere there is now, the appreciation, I think it is more widespread, and the realization of the sacrifices that people make,” Pat Lynch said.

Organizers said the town has been hosting this event for more than 6 years, and were expecting at least 100 people by the time the luncheon was over Saturday.
