ORONO – Memorial Day was Monday, but an event Tuesday is a reminder how important it is to honor and remember our vets every day of the year.
Yesterday the University of Maine Office of Veteran Affairs and the UMaine Business School teamed up to hold a 1940’s potluck lunch.
The idea was to bring World War II veterans back in time with guests dressing the part. And from what they tell usthe veterans couldn’t feel more honored.
Veteran Norm Rissignol said “It’s unreal. This is about, the last three years, this is the third time I’ve been honored.”
Guests were asked to bring something to contribute to the potluck fitting the 1940’s theme.
