A group of veterans makes the long trip from Chillicothe for a ride on the river. Zanes Landing provided the entertainment this afternoon for some area veterans. The Knights of Columbus sponsor the trip for them to take a ride on the Lorena Sternwheeler. Organizers said the list fills up quickly. “We honor them by taking them on a cruise and feeding them a lunch, and also a minor gift which Zanesville has done for years. Matter of fact, they were top council and recognized for their work with the chairman and also the veterans,” said Bob Neider, Knights of Columbus Chairman of Columbus diocese. Chillicothe veterans have been taking a ride on the Lorena for over four years now. Neider said it’s something they take a lot of pride in. The Knights of Columbus made a large lunch and brought it aboard the vessel, which brought a smile to the veterans’ faces.
