Honoring Our Veterans During COVID-19

During this troubling time, COVID-19 has changed everything for everybody, including our veterans who we honor every year on Veteran’s Day.

 

Our lives have been turned upside down, and as the pandemic continues Macon Bank & Trust and Citizens Bank have found a way to honor and pay tribute to our veterans, with a Drive-Thru Breakfast Event.

These two banks usually honor our veterans with an inside breakfast and a program, but this year they will have to follow COVID-19 precautions.

On Saturday, November 7, at Citizens Bank Main Office, located at 400 Hwy. 52, in Lafayette, veterans are asked to drive around to the back of the parking lot, between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., where a free breakfast and hat will be safely distributed. Bank employees will be on site to direct traffic. All area veterans are invited.

 On Tuesday, November 10th, at Macon Bank & Trust’s main office, located at 609 Red Boiling Springs Road, in Lafayette, a free breakfast and a small gift will be safely distributed to our veterans by the bank staff. You will be directed in the parking lot. This drive-thru breakfast is in appreciation of your service to our country and please plan to arrive between 7:30 a.m and 9 a.m. All area veterans are invited. Please call to reserve your breakfast, 615-666-6448.
