Forbes celebrated Veterans day with our residents and special honorees with a celebration that included assistance from the activities department. We started our program with the song “God Bless America,” with James playing the piano. Everyone was singing along. After the Pledge of Allegiance, the Chaplain from the American Legion post 577 said an opening prayer thanking our Vets, which was followed by the former Commander of the same post reading about the history of Veterans day. We sang patriotic songs in between, recognized and honored our Vets with a certificate, card, and flag thanking them for their service. We followed up with a moment of silent prayer with a bell ringing for those that were lost, and a reading from Scripture. We ended the program with a patriotic song, and afterward we all enjoyed some refreshments and socializing. On Thursday at our Catholic mass, Father Joe continued the Veterans day theme dedicating the mass to our Vets.
