On Monday November 11th, the Croton Yacht Club held it’s tenth annual Veterans Day Luncheon. It was a perfect day, where over one hundred guests were treated to a delicious Thanksgiving themed lunch prepared by Yacht Club members and entertained by the Croton Harmon High School band who flawlessly performed numerous patriotic songs. Scouts greeted Veterans as they arrived and catered to their every need during the day.
Over 400 cards decorated the room, each beautifully hand colored and filled with both moving and comical sentiments from Carrie E. Tompkins and Furnace Woods elementary school students. A select few cards were read to the Veterans with the most poignant and moving message penned by CET fourth grader Jason Li.
“When light gave out heroes rose.
They were the sun to the battlefield.
They sacrificed lives for good,
and for other people’s freedom
and for liberty. Those heroes will be
Jason’s words deeply moved the audience by simply and accurately capturing the true sentiment of Veterans Day.
Many thanks to everyone who made the day so special for our local heroes.
