VA to host Patriot Day program
The Veterans Administration Center will conduct a Patriot Day Program Thursday to pay homage to the victims of the terrorist bombings on Sept. 11, 2001.
The John Hafer Octet will give a patriotic concert. Special Sept. 11th Commemorative packets of Forget Me Not seeds, suitable for planting, will be given to all patients and invited guests, courtesy of Wakelin Funeral Home.
Volunteers who have achieved the milestone of donating 4,000 hours of service over the course of their lifetime will receive recognition. The 4,000 hour initiative came from President Bush's address following the 9-11 attacks when he called upon all Americans to donate 4,000 hours of community service over the course of their lifetime.
