Veterans At Lakewood Senior Health Campus Assisted Living Remembered
On November 9th 2010 Hospice of the Western Reserve helped to pay tribute to many of our veterans here at Lakewood Senior Health Campus, along with Activity Director Christine Dorsey. Through the Peaceful and Proud initiative this dedicated veteran's program strives to reach out to the veteran community with educational programs and to raise awareness about hospice services. Starting with the Pledge of Allegiance and followed by the playing of "Taps" by our resident veteran Mr. Frank Mills, a slide presentation by hospice was shown. Each veteran was called by name and received a special pin.
A representative from VFW MOC 3580, Mr. Don Briggs, also attended and gave a brief presentation. A special table was displayed with veteran pictures. Our veterans enjoyed looking at pictures and talking about their individual circumstances. According to Christine, "We must always pay tribute and never forget the Men and Women who served our country so bravely." We must also pray for our present soldiers serving in Afganistan and Iraq. May they come home safely. Hospice then continued on to our Care Center to remember those men and women veterans as well.
