ROCKWELL — Powles Staton Funeral Home will be host for a Veterans Appreciation Day from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday at 913 W. Main St.

Military veterans are welcome to enjoy a free lunch and register for door prizes. Powles Staton held a similar event last year.

As always, the funeral home encourages those attending to bring any worn American flags they want to dispose of as part of the funeral home’s “Retire Your Flag With Honor” program, in which the flags are used as part of dignified cremations of military veterans.

Unwrapped toys also are accepted for the funeral home’s Operation Toy Soldier program.
