'Values for Veterans' Available Around Town

Check out the deals available for Lemont veterans this Veterans Day, and the entire week.

Lemont veterans, your town appreciates you—and local businesses have deals in place to show you just how much. 

Stonehouse Pub, Front Street Cantina, Nick's Tavern, Jimbo's Pizza, Taphouse Grill, Jewel-Osco, Pawz and Klawz, Avon, and United Cleaners all have specials for veterans, beginning Nov. 11.

Kudos to our Lemont business people for stepping forward--another reason for residents to spend their money in town!

One other business has a discount for vets and current military personnel : Jewel in Lemont gave me 10 per cent off my shopping bill Saturday ( running through Tuesday). I also had the opportunity to buy lunch and dinner for a couple military personnel this week (as I always do). The only problem I have with that is, if they're not in uniform I can't tell if they are currently in service. As a Vietnam vet I can tell you that no military should be treated or ignored as some of our fellow GIs were back in the 60's and 70's. Just venting a bit to let all know we should respect and honor all current military and vets. Thanks, Rick

That's so nice that you do that Rick! Back when my husband was stationed at 29 Palms, California, I was visiting and we left the base for the weekend and went to Big Bear. One night after dinner at a restaurant we asked for our bill and the waiter told us it was already taken care of, that the kind couple we had exchanges hellos with at the table across from us (who had already left) wanted to say thank you for his service. A random act of kindness from a stranger is more touching than anything else! We will never forget it!

I'm the Marie that's doing the Avon offer. Just wanted to let you all know that that includes the spouses and/or parents as they also serve/served when their loved ones do. Feel free to pass the word on to those you know who had a love one that served in the military. And thank you to all of our Veterans and current military personnel serving our great nation!
