Powles Staton Funeral Home will have Veteran Appreciation Day April 26

ROCKWELL —  Powles Staton Funeral Home will hold a “Veteran Appreciation Day” April 26 (a Tuesday) at the funeral home, located at 913 W. Main St.

The event will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and it offers a free lunch and shoeshines for military veterans. Those coming also can register to win a grill.

The funeral home is affiliated with Veterans Funeral Care and also offers “Retire Your Flag with Honor” and “Operation Toy Soldier” programs.

Those attending the Veteran Appreciation Day are encouraged to  bring any of their used and worn American flags for proper disposal. As a way to honor military veterans who are cremated, Powles Staton Funeral Home burns the used American flags with the veterans as part of the process, giving the flag one last service to its country.

The funeral home also is always accepting new and unwrapped toys for Operation Toy Soldier, which supports active military and their families at Christmas.
