Justice of the Peace Elieen Herrington, with help from Volunteers and staff at the Senior Center, held the annual Veterans Day Spaghetti Feed on Saturday November 11th.
Hosting over 100 veterans and parade participants, the feast included spaghetti, sauce (with a vegetarian option), salad and garlic bread. A spectacular spread of deserts were available including apple and pumpkin pie and the most amazing brownies on the planet provided by Ellie Curtis (let’s just say I ate more than one).
The Fraternal Order of Eagles offered their own table of refreshments to fill out the spread.
“We provide this every year as a service to our veterans and other service members like the students from Gardnerville here today representing the Douglas County ROTC. Volunteers consider this type of service an example of how the community comes together to express gratitude for sacrifices made for our country.” explained Justice Herrington.
The meal, provided at no cost to the guests, was donated and served by volunteers organized by Justice Herrington. Other members of the community who donated or volunteered with the meal included: Vanessa Stephens (Storey County Clerk/Treasurer), Jay Carmona (president of the VCH one acre association board), NIcole Barde (Senior Center Board Member), Dale Turney, Cynthia and Patrick Kennedy and many others.
