Veterans Day Brunch planned for today

Thursday, November 11, 2021

Employees who are veterans are invited to stop by a Veterans Day Brunch from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, in the Bruce McClymonds Conference Center (Room B), located at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital.

No seating will be available this year and all food items will be pre-packaged and handed out by catering staff. Night- and afternoon-shift employees are asked to see the dietary supervisor on duty during their shift to receive a Veterans Day meal coupon to be used in the cafeteria. Coupons will be valid on Veterans Day 2021 only.

At noon, there will be a flag-raising ceremony by the WVU AFROTC in front of J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, which will include a prayer, moment of silence, and flyover (weather permitting) by the HealthNet helicopter.

Small American flags are be available for purchase at the Friends Gift Shop for $5. They will be placed on the front lawn of Ruby to honor veterans and active duty military. Proceeds from flag sales will benefit an organization that supports veterans.

Friends Gift Shop, Starbucks, and the Mountaineer and Med Center pharmacies will offer discounts that day to all veterans.
