Area veterans stopped by the Sons of Italy on Monday, where they and their families enjoyed a free meal in honor of Veterans Day this Thursday. Sons of Italy President Bill Ault said 300-350 meals are usually served at the annual event. “We’re just honored to have so many veterans in the valley, and I hope the majority of them come in and enjoy a meal,” Ault said. “The immediate families are welcome.

They’ll come in and hopefully enjoy one of our better pasta meals. We’ve made extra sauce. Everything’s ready. “We’ve done this several years in a row, and hopefully we’ll do it next year, too. We couldn’t do it on Veterans Day because there’s so much going on. That’s our regular pasta day (4-7 p.m. Thursdays) so we’re doing it today to honor all the veterans and their families. … Hopefully everyone who’s eligible comes in and enjoys.”
