To honor Stow-area veterans, the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley provided about 40 veterans and guests with a pre-packaged lunch and the opportunity to meet with town and state officials on Veterans Day, November 11. Lunch included a sandwich, chips, salads, beverage, dessert, and more, and more than 30 volunteers provided the lunches to participants who remained in their cars.
Local dignitaries, including State Representative Kate Hogan, Selectmen Ellen Sturgis, Megan Birch-McMichael, Jim Salvie, and  Chair Tom Ryan, Fire Chief Landry, and Acting Police Chief Sallese, joined Rotarians, members of the Nashoba Regional High School Interact club, and community volunteers, to greet and thank the veterans. The lunch served as an alternative to the traditional Veterans Day breakfast.
This Veterans Day appreciation lunch was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, Friends of the Stow Council on Aging, Worker’s Credit Union, Shaw’s Stow, and Honey Pot Hill Orchards.
