A Patriotic Salute
ST. MARY OF THE ANGELS PRESENTED
A PATRIOTIC SALUTE
On July 7, 2019 at 2:00 to our Veterans and what a success it was. The fantastic program was put together by Dennis Ouradnik and Arland Kilmek.
The program opened with the presenting of colors by the Honor Guard, numerous patriotic songs by the famous St. Mary of the angels choir including a hero’s salute to all branches of the service.
A presentation by Rolling Thunder, an honoring of POW’s, was very memorable. A rose was then presented to our very own WW ll veteran, Herman VanBeckum. Ian Spaulding, one of our young parishioners now on active duty was also recognized.
The beautiful voice of Jim Scovell singing the Ballad of the Green Berets followed by Kevin Van Ess playing taps made this an afternoon to remember.
A large display of military memorabilia was enjoyed all in attendance.
