Military spouse

dinner correction

The American Legion Wayne Post Number 11 is sponsoring the dinner on Saturday to honor military spouses. The News-Argus reported Thursday that it is sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which is incorrect.

The event is part of Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Melissa Thames with the National Guard's Family Assistance Center in Goldsboro said they are expecting between 70 and 80 people for the roast beef dinner and a movie.

The free event is for spouses of National Guard troops, but it is open to all military spouses. It will be at the National Guard Armory in Goldsboro beginning at 4:30 p.m. The armory is at 700 U.S. 117 S. Bypass. Those planning to attend the dinner should let Mrs. Thames know by calling 739-5331.

The National Guard is also in need of items for care packages and money for shipping the items to the troops. Donated items can include cookies, chips, canned goods with hand-held can openers, hand sanitizer, wet wipes, books, video cassettes, DVDs and tapes. Any food that can melt, aerosol products and anything with nudity will not be accepted.

People can drop the items by the Goldsboro armory Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. For more information, call 739-5331. Cash or checks are accepted. Checks should be made payable to the 230th Family Readiness Group.


John Lewis Jr., not Mike Lewis, is a board member of Wayne County Memorial Association. The News-Argus misstated his name in a story in Thursday's edition.
