Two Lebanon County legislators will host a free Veterans Appreciation breakfast on Veterans Day.

Sen. Chris Gebhard (R-48) and Rep. Russ Diamond (R-102) have issued an invitation to veterans of the 48th Senatorial District and their families.

“Rep. Diamond and I are honored to host the incredible men and women who have served our country, as well as their families, as a small way to thank them for defending our great country,” Gebhard said. “We owe them a debt of gratitude for the sacrifices they made so we are able to enjoy our freedom.”

The holiday honoring U.S. veterans falls on Friday, Nov. 11. The breakfast will be held at Country Fare Restaurant, 498 E. Lincoln Ave., Myerstown.

Check-in begins at 8 a.m. Breakfast and the program will start at 9.

Scott Kohr, director of Lebanon County Veterans Affairs, will be keynote speaker.

Lebanon County Recorder of Deeds Dawn Blouch will be there to issue free veteran ID cards, which can be presented to businesses throughout the region in exchange for discounts. Veterans who wish to receive an ID card should bring their DD214 Form.

Because seating is limited, veterans and their families are asked to RSVP by Tuesday, Nov. 1. Veterans can RSVP online at or by calling Gebhard’s district office at 717-274-6735.
