Sobeys in Rothesay rolled out the red carpet to veterans today. This is for their annual lunch with the veterans which celebrates the sacrifices made by those who bravely served this country. The idea was born by store manager Don Gass and veteran John Ricketts. His wife Evaleen tells CHSJ News, it started out as just a small luncheon but quickly great into the celebration that it is today.
John Ricketts served in the Second World War and lost his leg in a mine explosion. Evaleen Ricketts adds if her husband was alive and could see how big his dream has become, it would bring him to tears.
