“We’re honoring Memorial Day the best way we know how: by treating our area’s veterans and troops with a delicious meal at no charge,” said Gary Huether, Jr., co-founder and president of Arooga’s. “We appreciate all that they do for our great country and we look forward to showing them that appreciation on this special day.” This past Veterans Day, Arooga’s treated vets and troops to a similar complimentary meal, a tradition Huether Jr. says is here to stay.
