Posted at: 05/25/2013 5:48 PM

 (ABC 6 NEWS)-- Memorial Day weekend is all about honoring the men and women who died while serving our country, and one local liquor store chain wanted to make sure they were thanked.  All of the Andy's Liquor Store locations in Rochester held a "Thank a Veteran Celebration."  There were plenty of activities for guests including a ride on hovercraft.  A Veteran was at each location so that people had a chance to personally thank them for their service.  Money raised benefits disabled American Veterans and the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Program.  Last year the celebrations raised $10,000.
