Vriendschap Village to pay tribute to area veterans on Nov. 9

Vriendschap Village Retirement Community of Pella will pay tribute to area veterans with a Veteran’s Airfield Day on Saturday, November 9, from 11 a.m to 1 p.m.

Residents, families and community members are invited to the Pella Airport for a chili luncheon, plane rides and a look at WWII aircrafts. The event will honor Vriendschap Village’s 18 veteran residents and is accepting free-will donations in support of the Pella American Legion and Watermark for Kids, an organization to help local children thrive.

Guests may also enter the raffle drawing for a free, one-hour, sightseeing plane ride for two at a later date.

“This is a great opportunity to acknowledge all of our area veterans and raise money to help give back to our community,” said Brenda Colvin, Executive Director of Vriendschap Village.

The Pella Airport is located at 501 West 15th Street. For more information on Vriendschap Village, contact 641-628-8260.
