Westlake hosts 'Patriotic Pick-Me-Up' for local veterans

Westlake Senior and Community Services Director Lydia Gadd and Activity Planner Jodi Rodriguez hold up signs thanking veterans who attended the Patriotic Pick-Me-Up event.

In honor of Veterans Day 2020, the Westlake Senior and Community Services Department hosted a drive-through event on Nov. 11 to say "thank you" to local veterans.

Mayor Dennis Clough was on hand to greet the brave men and women who have served our country. Participants received gift boxes and baked goods from the safety of their cars and were able to converse with the mayor from a safe distance.

"We're just very pleased that the veterans are coming out here so we can say 'thanks' for their service to our country over the years," Mayor Clough said during the event. "And it's just nice to be able to put a little smile on their face."
