The Clinton Eagles of Post 887 hosted a membership drive. The drive featured several events including cornhole, a chili cookoff and even live entertainment.

Organizers say it's all about having a good time, but also honoring the true reason why we celebrate.

"As we all know, Christmas has become just a shopping frenzy," said Kathy Scott, President of the Womens Auxiliary Group, "Veterans Day is the day we can truly sit with our fellow veterans that have sacrificed everything."

Post 887 offered free membership for one year to select groups. This included all law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, honorably discharged military, military police, military firefighters or correctional officers.
