Milwaukee, Wis. – To remember, honor and celebrate this Memorial Day, Sendik’s is offering a range of events for the community to participate in. These include special “Meet a Local Hero” veteran appearances, $1 American Flags to support Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, and the annual shrimp and lobster boil.

Sendik’s is honored to welcome several veterans, true local heroes, who will visit the Mequon, Franklin, West Bend and New Berlin locations. The veterans will be available to meet customers from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. American Flags will also be for sale for $1, with all proceeds going toward Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, a cause Sendik’s supports yearly. It is a nonprofit that honors all veterans by flying WWII, Korean War and terminally ill veterans from other conflicts to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials.

“We want to take the time this Memorial Weekend to honor our troops, and Sendik’s is absolutely grateful and honored to welcome veterans at our stores,” says Ted Balistreri, family co-owner. “We hope people take the time to greet, meet or simply thank these heroes.”

To celebrate spring, warmer weather and delicious seafood, Sendik’s will host its annual shrimp and lobster boil all day Saturday, May 28 at 12 Sendik’s locations: Brookfield (Lilly Road), Elm Grove, Wauwatosa, New Berlin, Greenfield, Whitefish Bay, Germantown, Franklin, Hartland, Mequon, Grafton and West Bend. All are welcome to come for shrimp and lobster to enjoy either in-store or at home.
