Sunday, February 25, 2018, was a great, patriotic, morning as we celebrated the 94th Birthday of US Veteran Jim Ross.
I want to thank the members of the American Legion, Marlin Moore, Post 133 who collaborated with Council Member David Singer and the entire Village Council to hold a special birthday celebration for Jim Ross, a veteran who served our country on his 94th birthday.
It was my honor as Mayor to present a proclamation to him recognizing Sunday, February 25, 2018, as "US Veteran Jim Ross Day in honor of his 94th Birthday" - as our way of officially thanking and recognizing his outstanding achievements, including service in the US Armed Forces in time of War.
It was in honor of Veteran Ross that the Village sponsored the cost of the Sunday, 2/25 breakfast for the first 30 veterans who reside in Palmetto Bay in attendance. This was a small gesture of thanks given their service to our country.
I also want to publicly acknowledge and thank Council Member Singer and his family (along with Laurel Auberbacher, who prepare breakfast at every other Sunday at the American Legion (breakfast is served every Sunday), which serves as a fund raider for the Post expenses.
Breakfast runs in the $5-6 range. Breakfast, open to the public, runs on Sunday and is open it the public from 8:30 AM to 10 AM.
Please take the time to go our, enjoy a local breakfast and support our American Legion.
