Veterans Remembrance Program at St. Francis Manor
A Veterans Remembrance Program was hosted by St. Francis Manor on Thursday, November 10, to honor local veterans. Over 120 people attended the event including St. Francis Manor and Seeland Park residents as well as veterans from the Grinnell community. Activity Directors Caitlin Mellick and Abby Renbarger presented the program which included Army Veteran Jon Duke sharing his story of serving in Iraq in the Intelligence Department. The Grinnell Ceremonial Unit represented by Commander Ron Davis presented the flag to Seeland Park resident Jane Thompson, in honor of her late husband and veteran, Don Thompson, who served in the Army from 1944-1946 in the Occupational Forces in Germany. Don passed away last year and was a resident of St. Francis Manor at the time of his death. Attendees enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided by the Culinary Department following the program.
