Here is a list activities and businesses thanking our military men and women on Veteran’s Day, by offering free or discounted meals or services:

At 10 a.m., a parade is set for Nov. 9 from Wilmore to the Thomson-Hood Veterans Center. A ceremony will follow.

At 4pm, the inaugural Lexington National Veterans Day Run will take place at Coldstream Park in Lexington. A timed 5K run and one mile family walk is included. You don't have to run, but can come out to support our veterans. A supporter option is available, and donations will be given to Folds of Honor Foundation.

Nick Ryans on Jefferson Street is hosting a dinner on Monday in Lexington. 25% of the proceeds will go toward helping a disabled veteran organization. The Veteran's Day dinner will be served at 5 p.m.
