On Veteran’s Day, November 11, Russian Chapel Hills Winery will hold a special service in memory of all the men who gave their lives in war. All veterans are invited.

There will be a service held at 3 p.m. on Veteran’s Day in the St. Anna Chapel, an authentic Russian Orthodox Church, disassembled and brought to Polk County from Russia, and consecrated last September. After the memorial service all are invited to stay for a barbecue cook-out and wine tasting hosted by the winery owner, Andrey Medvedev. Medvedev, a veteran himself, served in the Russian Special Forces in Kandahar during the Soviet War in Afghanistan.

“Please join us on this day to celebrate the heroic sacrifices of the men and women who have gone to war and given all,” Medvedev said.
