14 Nov Carroll communities celebrate Veterans Day
“Integrace Fairhaven hosted its 21st annual Veterans Day Reception on Saturday afternoon. The event included a posting of the colors, readings on the origin of Veterans Day, a video presentation, a group sing-along of the service anthems, a remembrance ceremony and group service photos representing each branch of the military.
“Fairhaven resident Max Wiener, an Air Force veteran, described the reception as “inspiring.”
““You see all the branches of service represented when the military songs are played and it’s amazing to see how many military people are here,” Wiener said. “Most of us who have been in the military tend to continue to be proud of it. Veterans Day is the one day of the year that you really get to see that you’re not alone. You see that you have comrades.”
“Fairhaven resident Ann Milne, the chair of the community’s reception, said 98 veterans live in the retirement community.”
