On May 24th, we honored our residents who served in the military with “A Salute to Service” Memorial Day ceremony. Linda Simon from Compassus Hospice ran a beautiful program to acknowledge our proud Veteran residents. A majority came to be honored and thanked for their service. We commemorated their bravery and the sacrifice of lost soldiers by having each veteran place a carnation into the wreath. Veterans also received a beautiful keepsake to take with them. Stars for our Troops is an organization that takes the embroidered stars from retired US flags and re-purposes them into a memento for those who have served. The star was framed with the following message: “I am part of our American flag that has flown over the USA. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that You are not forgotten.” We are honored to have so many Veteran residents in our community.
