A Big Thank You To Our Veterans

As we approach Veterans Day, we here at the Lakewood Division of Aging have been pausing to remember and appreciate the sacrifices made by the members of our armed forces. It is axiomatic that so many of us have so little idea of what has been given on our behalf. On Wednesday, November 18th, at the Lawther Senior Center, we will be saying a big "Thank You" to those who have served.

In conjunction with Hospice of the Western Reserve, we will be holding our second annual Veterans Celebration. At this event, we will be distributing the official State of Ohio 2015 - 2016 Veterans Pin. This pinning ceremony will be conducted by Mayor Michael Summers, and a veteran representative of Hospice of the Western Reserve. There will be patriotic music, refreshments and a time for remembrance.

The Lakewood Division of Aging cordially invites all veterans and the spouses of veterans, as well as all those who served in America's armed forces in peacetime to join us for this celebration. We are located at the Lawther Center, 16024 Madison Ave. Lakewood, Ohio. This event will be on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, beginning at 10:30 AM. Individuals aged 60+ are welcome to join us for lunch immediately following the celebration. Please call the Activities Office at 216-529-5005 for more information.
