Happy Veterans Day

Sunday, November 11, 2018
This morning to celebrate our Resident Veterans we had a Veterans Day Ceremony.
We sang patriotic songs, shared stories and took time to remember those Veterans who are no longer with us.
Thank you to San Carlos Boy Scout Troop 321 for helping us put together a beautiful program for our Residents.
Thank you to the American Legion Auxiliary District 8, Unit 510 for making and donating poppy corsages for our Veteran spouses, flag pins with ribbon and poppies for everyone.
Thank you to our Veterans each and everyday!

Troop 321 lead the Resident in patriotic songs.
During the "Armed Forces Medley" we had Residents and Visitors stand for their branch of service.
Army was the most popular today.

 Activity Director, Kathleen signed "I am Proud to be an American" song.

Troop 321 had a very talented bugle player.
He started the service with "Star Spangle Banner" and ended with "Taps"

Thank you to Troop 321 for making this a special Veterans Day.
