Southampton High School’s Mariners Patriot Club treated area veterans to a special take-out dinner on Oct. 26 at the Burnett Field House in Water Mill.
The annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner was made possible through a community effort. All meals and beverages were donated by local eateries, with students and volunteers packaging and serving them. Veterans also received gift bags, cards, placemats and desserts provided by the Southampton Elementary School Student Council.
Kicking off the event was student Laine Yastresmski singing the national anthem. Also in attendance were members of the Southampton Fire Department Explorers and special guests from the Westhampton Beach-based National Guard.
