Local students saluting our soldiers

The Friendswood High School ‘Saluting Our Soldiers’ Club held an appreciation luncheon for area military veterans this Saturday, April 23, 2016 at the Anson Jones Masonic Lodge in Friendswood.

The event was the culmination of 3 1/2 years of fundraising and organization by club co-presidents and founders Audrey O’Neil and Brittany Morgan. The luncheon featured guest speakers State Representative Greg Bonnen and Friendswood Mayor Pro Tem Jim Hill, catered by Gina’s Italian Kitchen and door prizes given to the veterans and their families.
The Saluting Our Soldiers Club was founded on the mission to ‘serve those who serve us’. At previous meetings, the club has sent care packages to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and attended air shows at Ellington Field.
