Chick-Fil-A Restaurant Raises Community Awareness in Orange County

Posted on Apr 12 2018 - 12:16pm

Chick-fil-A restaurant  located in Foothill Ranch at Portola & Bake Streets has request that Post 6024 dedicate their Missing Man Table!  The restaurant displays the table twice a year, on Veterans Day and Memorial Day.  This will be a great opportunity for the Post to get out in the community together, to display our true comradeship, uniformity, and call to support our own.   

Figure 1: Poppy Distribution         

To raise community awareness in Lake Forest and neighboring cities Chick-Fil-A has asked the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6024 to distribute Poppy’s at their storefront.  The management team, Erik and Susan match what was collected on this Veterans Day ceremony.
