Veteran enjoys a special holiday

To the editor:

I would like to thank Applebee's for the wonderful free meal they served to me on Veterans Day. The service and food was outstanding. Mike, one of the managers, even stopped by my table, thanked me for my service and gave me a gift.

I would also like to thank the children at Egremont school for the wonderful thank you cards they made for the tables. In addition, I need to thank Freddie from Egremont School, as he made the card on my table. It was so obvious that he put a huge amount of work to make it perfect.

Freddie, you made my heart smile.
