Illinois State Rep. Anthony DeLuca Hosting Veterans' Appreciation Picnic

To honor those who have served in our nation’s armed forces, Illinois Rep. Anthony DeLuca, D-Chicago Heights, is hosting a free Veterans’ Appreciation Picnic on Friday, July 8  from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park, located at 19101 Halsted St. in Glenwood.

“Veterans made sacrifices for our safety and freedom that we must not take for granted,” DeLuca said. “They deserve our thanks every day, not just on special holidays and this picnic is sign of our community’s gratitude for their service.”

Veterans and their family members can come to Veterans Memorial Park at any time during the event for conversation, hot dogs, and BINGO.  Representative DeLuca will be joined by leaders from local governments, including Bloom Township, Rich Township, Frankfort Township, the Village of Glenwood John H. Blakey Center for Seniors, and the Village of Monee.

“I am looking forward to visiting with veterans from across our district,” DeLuca said.

Space is limited. To RSVP for Rep. DeLuca’s Veterans’ Appreciation Picnic, please contact his constituent services office at 708-754-7900 or
