ROCKWELL — A Veterans Appreciation Day will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at Powles Staton Funeral Home, 913 W. Main St.

The day includes a free lunch, and veterans can register for door prizes.

The funeral home is encouraging those who attend to bring any worn U.S. flag they want to dispose of properly. Powles Staton has a Retire Your Flag With Honor program that provides an additional way to honor deceased veterans who are cremated.

The funeral home also accepts new and unwrapped toys for Operation Toy Soldier, which provides gifts for children of military families at Christmas.
