Veterans Day Ceremony 11/11/2021 includes video
A day to honor, remember and respect our veterans.
I thought it would be nice to share with the community a special Veterans Day Ceremony that was held at the Tracy Hall monuments on November 11, 2021 at 12:00 noon. On behalf of the American Legion, I wish to thank the following for taking the time to participate and making this event a success.
Veterans from American Legion Post # 8; Norwich Fire department; Scouts Troop 253; Marion Cross school students; Robert Totz, bugler; Dmitriy Kim, videographer; VT State Representatives, Tim Briglin and James Masland; Norwich Town Clerk, Bonnie Munday; and St. Barnabas Priest-in-Partnership, Jennie Anderson, and all those who attended. I hope I did not leave anyone out.
Photos for this story/photo essay were courtesy of Demo Sofronas, Dmitriy Kim and Linda Cook, and the video covers it all.
Take a little time if you will to watch the video as it is impressive and nicely done.
Video was taken by Dmitriy Kim and the link can be found here:
