Orland Park Vets Commission to host 10th Annual Veterans' Steak Fry
ORLAND PARK, IL – The Village of Orland Park Veterans’ Commission will hold its tenth annual Steak Fry for Orland Park veterans on Sunday, November 8 at 1:00 pm. The cost is $9.00 per person and includes dinner and beverages, with a limit two tickets per veteran.
Held each year at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 South Ravinia Avenue, the event is for Orland Park veterans only. If a non-resident belongs to an Orland Park military organization, i.e., American Legion Post 111 or Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #2604, a membership card must be presented to purchase tickets. Tickets are currently available at Orland Park's Frederick T. Owens Village Hall, 14700 South Ravinia Avenue.
Each year, the Orland Park Veterans’ Commission honors a person or group that has promoted veterans’ awareness in the community. This year’s honorees include USMC Sgt. Sean Kaspar, an Orland Park resident who was injured in Afghanistan in June of 2008 and the late John Hennessy, a member of the Orland Park Veterans’ Commission who recently passed away.
