Salute to Veterans

From November 10 to 13 the main driveway leading into Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church was lined with American flags.  Some of the flags had an additional ribbon commemorating a veteran sponsored by parishioners in conjunction with our Wreaths Across American sales weekend..

The court was joined with American Heritage Girls and their mothers in helping to get sponsorships, as well as placement of the flags.  The weekend was a bit cool, but it did not slow down the enthusiasm of all the girls and women involved in placement of the flags.
