Kings Park civic groups to honor vets

Veterans will be honored in a ceremony Wednesday night when the Kings Park and San Remo civic associations hold a joint meeting.

Three local veterans organizations will be given plaques at the 7:30 p.m. meeting, said Sean Lehmann, chairman of the Kings Park Civic Association. Assemb. Michael Fitzpatrick (R-St. James) will be the guest speaker.

The meeting will be held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, 40 Church St., in Kings Park. Veterans Day is Friday.

The civic groups will honor the Kings Park chapter of the American Legion, and the Kings Park and Suffolk County Police chapters of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Lehmann said.

“We’ll talk about the importance of the veterans and what they’ve done for our country,” he said.

The two civic groups have hosted veterans ceremonies in the past, although not last year, Lehmann said. Each group counts more than 600 families in its membership, he said.
