Once again, the Munro House Bed and Breakfast in Jonesville Michigan is giving rooms to veterans at no charge as a thank you for their service. Veteran’s Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 11 at 11:00 AM in the Jonesville Middle School Gym. To honor our vets and get them to town to observe (and take part) in this local American Legion tradition, we are offering free rooms to our Facebook friends for Monday, November 10. We will make you a big breakfast on Tuesday morning and encourage you to enjoy the program as you leave town.
The program has been very well attended as the high school and middle school, along with local citizens, are invited to attend. Hundreds of people fill the gym as the American Legion brings in guest speakers. A local student is chosen as the winner of the patriot essay who then reads the speech to the audience. A veteran from a war era is also invited to speak on behalf of their military experience. The high school band plays as the flag twirlers perform to patriotic tunes.
All veterans are invited to like and follow Munro House Bed and Breakfast’s Facebook page. At random intervals, a free room is offered to the first caller via a posting on the Munro House Facebook Page until 6 rooms are given away. A $30 fee is charged to guarantee arrival and a $30 gift certificate towards dinner is given upon arrival. So, the night away costs our vets nothing. We are proud to have been participating in this promotion since 2010 to offer thanks to our veterans.
“Life is good in Jonesville”
