The monthly luncheons provide a venue for fellowship, honor, and camaraderie for veterans and service members of all ages. This luncheon is generally held on the fourth Friday of each month, with no luncheon in July. November and December dates are subject to change. The event is from 11:30am-1:30pm, always at the same location, and requires an RSVP. To be added to our roster and receive our monthly flyer/newsletter, please contact info@roll-call.org. We will send you the New Attendee form to complete, or you can download the form by clicking the link at the bottom of this page. Veterans and military personnel eat free, and the cost for civilians is a recommended $10 donation (covers the cost of the meal). The monthly Veterans Appreciation Luncheon is held at Birchman Baptist Church Family Activity Center, 9100 N. Normandale St. Fort Worth, TX 76116. RSVPs are due the Sunday before the luncheon.  A program accompanies lunch, with a different theme each month. For example, one month may focus on Korean War veterans or Vietnam. In some instances, the theme of a luncheon may focus on a significant event or date in military history, such as the end of WWII or a specific battle or engagement. Stories of our attendees’ heroism, courage and sacrifices are highlighted. We may interview several veterans whose military service included participation in a battle or campaign, we may have special guests such as a senator or member of congress, or we may provide singing entertainment. Regardless, we always sing the National Anthem, say the Pledge of Allegiance, have a prayer, and make announcements. We often make our attendees aware of special events in the community that support, honor, or highlight veterans. The luncheon is truly an amazing experience and to have so many veterans of all ages in one room together is incredible! It is something that cannot be adequately described with words, but only experienced.
