The Veterans of Newport is inviting the public to join them for a 2019 Veterans Day Celebration from 2 pm to 6 pm on Sunday, November 10th at Cappy’s Hillside Cafe.

“Join us to celebrate the brave men and women who took an oath to defend our country,” the event flyer states. “We will have raffles food, Guest Bartenders and lots of fun”!

All proceeds from the event will go directly to Operation Stand Down Rhode Island.
