Then it was time to move inside to enjoy a turkey luncheon, catered by TJ’s of Ashland and served by the Holliston Lions / Leos.
After a welcome by Steve Bradford, a number of presentations / messages were shared. Elected officials, Knights of Columbus donations and a heartfelt message from our Project 351 Leadership Team member Pranav Govindarajan.
Knights Tony Alexander and Mitch Liro presented $2,500 checks to “Tunnels to Towers” and “Homes for our Troops” from proceeds of the 2022 Annual Charity Raffle.
Veterans learned a long time ago that when the chow line forms, it’s best to be near the front (see below).
Thank you to all who made this remembrance happen.
