The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will again serve coffee and donuts at the annual Veterans Day Ceremony sponsored by the Sutter-Terlizzi American Legion Post 16. The ceremony remembering our local Veterans will be held at Veterans Memorial Park (the Riverwalk) in Shelton on Nov. 11 and will begin at 10:30 a.m.. They will begin serving coffee at 10 a.m.
One of DAR’s missions is to support our Veterans and active service members. The Sarah Riggs Humphreys-Mary Silliman Chapter’s “DAR & Donuts” event is one way to honor this mission and support the community. This event is only possible by the support of Mark Dymerski, franchise owner of the Howe Avenue Dunkin Donuts in Shelton, who has supplied the coffee and donuts for this ceremony since 2008.
Bring your tattered flags. The Chapter will have a basket available to collect American flags that are no longer serviceable so they can be disposed of properly.
