Includes ½ chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, coleslaw, dinner roll and dessert, eat in or carry out. We are asking members to volunteer to help work the dinner and or donate a dessert. Desserts are much needed. We want this to be a success and without volunteers we cannot do it. Please call me at 513 407-7090 if you can donate a dessert or work.


Here’s a review from one of our satisfied customers!

Heard so much about the All You Can Eat Breakfast the last few years I decided it was time to take a chance. I arrived at 10am and was greeted by a bodacious blonde, she took my dough and gave me a wink and a ticket. I ambled to the rear and there was a trio of gorgeous ladies serving fabulous meats, cooked to perfection by (gasp) a chef in shorts. Determined to keep my eyes averted from those legs, I had to tear myself away and let the lovely Mary Ann cook my eggs to order. Biscuits & gravy, pancakes, potato casserole, fruits, coffee, juices, and milk rounded out the meal. YOU ALL SHOULD GIVE THE BREAKFAST A TRY!


We are always looking at ways to help our Veterans, if you have any suggestions, contact me or come to our next meeting on July 30 at 7:30pm (change of date)


God Bless Our Veterans

MaryAnn Callan, President LOV-S
