Veterans Appreciation Lunch.

Serving hundreds of Veterans each year

Each year Appalachian Hospice Care hosts a luncheon for the Veterans of the Big Sandy region. The event began in 2014 and was held at the National Guard Armory in Prestonsburg, KY. Over the years the luncheon has continued to grow, serving hundreds of Veterans each year, and even outgrowing its venue and moving to the Stumbo-Wilkinson Center at Jenny Wiley State Park in 2017. Each year the Veterans in attendance are served barbecue and fish, have their pictures professionally taken, and are given door prizes and other giveaways.

The 2023 Veterans Luncheon will be held on October 26th, 2023 at the Stumbo-Wilkinson Convention Center from 
11:00 am – 2:00 pm. All veterans are welcome! Should any veterans need assistance with transportation please contact
Kristie Yates or Leslie Rice toll-free at 888-455-1996 so arrangements can be made.
The luncheon is held the last Thursday of October each year. We appreciate the opportunity to give back to those who have given so much for this country. Without the help of community partners, sponsors, and volunteers this event would not be possible. If you are interested in partnering with AHC in 2023 to volunteer or sponsor the Seventh Annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon, call Sharon Branham, CEO or Shag Branham, COO toll-free at 888-455-1996.
