Americans banded together on Friday to celebrate our freedom and honor those who fought for it: veterans. Community Nursing Services joined in on the holiday, hosting its own Grill and Chill.
The event, which began at 3 p.m., welcomed veterans of all kind, far and wide. Participants were encouraged to don red, white or blue as they enjoyed a meal consisting of burgers, salad, chips and more. A flag ceremony and prayer were conducted at the start of the meal.
Attendees were encouraged to pen a note saying their personal thanks to those who have served. This grill and chill was a way for the employees of Community Nursing Services to show their gratitude and give back to our local veterans.
