Veterans Day 2012

As a result of November 11th falling on Sunday, it would've been difficult to arrange the Veterans Day event at the usual date and time:  11/11@11am.  The Congregational Church was busy.  So Cheshire's VFW Post 10052 helped arrange an afternoon event.  And today it was inside the church, as compared the outside the church where activities are typically held on the Green.

Here are a few pix of the very well received event, including the VFW Post Commander (my dad, John White) offering his thoughts:

And here's a short clip of the closing song:

And along with the many veterans who attended and were honored in person, I thank our elected officials who I saw attending the event:

Council Member Patti Flynn Harris,

State Representative Al Adinolfi and

Congress Member-elect Elizabeth Esty.
