Veterans and their spouses are invited to a Veterans Social Gathering on Thursday, August 17 from 6:00-7:30 at the Petal Center for Seniors & Veterans. The center is located at 425 E. Central Avenue. This event is hosted by the Petal Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Petal. We hope that all of our area veterans will join us to exchange stories, meet other veterans, form friendships, ask questions and help us determine how we can best serve our veterans in Petal. Light refreshments will be served and there is no charge to attend. For additional information call Patricia Thompson at 601-909-6887.
