4 newest honorees and their family members (left to right Al, Ed, Ray & Harlan)
What an honor to celebrate Veterans Day with Primrose at our 5th annual Veterans Day Ceremony at the eleventh hour, and the eleventh day, of 2015. The East High School JROTC Color Guard team posted the colors and residents Bernie and Ruth sang America the Beautiful. Patriotic poems were read by residents and staff members and then all Veterans stood for an appreciative round of applause from the audience.
Primrose of Pueblo is fortunate to have 28 residents who are Veterans, and we honored the 4 newest Veterans with certificates of appreciation. Their service period included WWII and Vietnam and were both Army and Navy branches. The high point of the event was when Executive Director Glinda MacKenzie and Dining Director Deb Mertz unveiled their photos on the Wall of Honor for all to see. Family, spouses, staff and friends were able to be in attendance to make the occasion even more special. Congratulations to Al, Ed, Ray and Harlan. Thank you to all the Veterans for their service and to those still serving. God Bless America!
