Local MOAA, American Legion chapters hosting Veterans Day luncheon

The Hilton Head Area Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America and American Legion Post 49 will host a fellowship luncheon immediately following the annual Veterans Day ceremony held at the Shelter Cove Veterans Memorial at Shelter Cove Community Park.

“The members and auxiliary members of each organization will combine for this luncheon so that we can continue to enjoy the camaraderie of prior military service,” said Mike Danoff, president of the Hilton Head Area Chapter of the MOAA.

The Veterans Day ceremony starts at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, and will honor veterans with various speakers and tributes.

The luncheon will be held at noon at Poseidon Coastal Cuisine & Roof Top Bar, located at 38 Shelter Cove Lane. The menu features a choice of entree — meatloaf, roast turkey, grilled chicken Caesar salad or cavatappi with seafood — and includes a garden salad and choice of chocolate-banana bread pudding or carrot cake for dessert. Event tickets are all-inclusive and are $18 a person.

“This is our first luncheon event following the annual Veterans Day program,” Danoff said. “If, this year, we find that there's overwhelming interest by the public, next year we might consider hosting a luncheon at a facility that can accommodate larger groups.”
