Written by David Green.

The Fulton County Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Wauseon VFW Post 7274 have scheduled the fifth annual Family Appreciation Day. The April 26 event is for area families who have family members serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Family Day is scheduled at the VFW Hall, located at 1133 N. Ottokee St. in Wauseon. A buffet lunch will begin at 12:30 p.m. and a program will follow from 2 to 4 p.m. Musical entertainment, speakers and children’s activities are planned and door prizes will be given away.

Invitations will be sent to families with contact information on file, but all families who have members serving in the military are invited to attend. Participants are asked to bring a picture of their serviceman or servicewoman to include in a display. The pictures will be returned at the conclusion of the day. Family photos will be taken to send to the family members serving in the military.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.
