The City of Wyoming will hold a new Veterans Day Breakfast on Monday, November 12 at the Wyoming Senior Center (2380 DeHoop Avenue SW). The breakfast replaces the annual outdoor ceremony and is free for veterans to attend.

Ken Jones, who served in all four branches of the military, will be the keynote speaker for the event. Ken has a decorated military career and retired after 22 years of loyal and faithful service to our country. He has a broad range of technical and administrative skills that include aircraft interior design, computer network programming and various federal government program analysis programs. Ken currently serves as a Legal Administrative Specialist for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Mayor Jack Poll will host the breakfast.

“The City of Wyoming is committed and proud to recognize those who have served, and continue to serve our country in the armed forces and protect our freedoms,” according to Rebecca Rynbrandt, Director of Community Services for the City of Wyoming. “Our Memorial Day and Veterans Day Ceremonies are a tribute to that service and protection.”

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety (2300 DeHoop Avenue SW) will also be accepting donations for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans during the month of November, Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. Items sought for donation include $25.00 gift cards (local fast food restaurants, Meijer, Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree, Gordon Food Marketplace, etc.), candy bars, pens, batteries, stamps, grooming/hygiene items, and clothing (new or gently used).
