Honoring Our Veterans
Monday, 11 November 2013

November 11--  The room was full of American veterans and their family members Monday for the annual "Honoring Our Veterans" luncheon sponsored by the Downtown Vidalia Association.


Students from Vidalia Heritage Academy sang the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corp songs as veterans of those branches of service stood and were recognized.


Before that, four-year-olds from Vidalia's Cornerstone Children's Center Choir entertained with a rousing version of Yankee Doodle Dandy.

The DVA's Paula Toole presented Major Countess with a Vidalia gift and thanked him for his service to our country. Image
