Doing what they can: Drive-thru luncheons to benefit veterans, families

Volunteers help serve 100 meals Saturday during the American Legion Post No. 130 drive-thru luncheon from the backdoor of the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Building. The event benefited local veterans and their friends and family. Another drive-thru lunch will be held on March 3 hosted by the All Veterans Stand Down, will be free to veterans and will consist of corn beef and cabbage. It will cost around $10 to the public.
