To mark RED Day on Thursday, May 11, a day dedicated to serving the community, the Mt. Juliet Keller Williams Realty office and more than 150 of their associates will partner with the Wilson County Veterans Services Office, American Legion of Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, Lebanon's Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars of America and Courtney's Restaurant to salute local veterans with a free pancake breakfast and day of service.
The breakfast will be held from 7 until 9:30 a.m. at the National Guard Armory, located at 1010 Leeville Pike in Lebanon. Veterans will be served a pancake breakfast to include sausage, coffee and drinks with the presentation of Colors and Benediction at 7:15 a.m. All veterans and their spouses are invited to attend for free.
The public is also invited to attend and honor veterans with a donation of a non-perishable food item that will be distributed that afternoon to veterans and members of the Wilson County Senior Citizens Awareness Network (SCAN). Keller Williams Realty, Second Harvest Food Bank and the Wilson County Sheriff's Office will collect and distribute the food donations.
"RED Day is built on the belief that people can and should come together to achieve extraordinary things to help others," said Sara Stephens, team leader of Keller Williams Mt. Juliet. "This year, we are celebrating our veterans of Wilson County who have served our country by giving them a morning of honor with a free pancake breakfast then going into their homes that afternoon to deliver food donations and make repairs to their homes. We are excited to spend time with the veteran residents of Wilson County."
Since the first RED Day in 2009, Keller Williams associates have given hundreds of thousands of hours of community service through activities ranging from food and blood drives to rebuilding homes and schools for community members in need. To learn more, visit www.kw.com/kw/redday.
