Veterans Day 2017 in Hernando County Florida

Real Estate Agent with Tropic Shores Realty - Ich spreche Deutsch!

Hernando County honored its Veterans this year with numerous events throughout the County. 

Starting out the many festivities throughout the County with a patriotic ceremony  was Notre Dame Catholic School with their Field of Honor celebration. The school's students participated in the event by presenting about their favorite Veterans, reading from their essays about the meaning of the flag, the singing of patriotic songs,  and finally a flag folding ceremony. 

The annual Veteran's parade in Brooksville, Florida, drew a nice crowd that watched Veterans, members of the High School ROTC programs, elected County and City officials, the Fire and Sheriff Departmens,  and numerous other community organizations. 

At the community center of the High Point Community, the dedication of a Veterans Memorial took place in front of a large and appreciative crowd. Residents of the High Point community with support of several local businesses donated their time, materials, and efforts to make this memorial a reality. The event featured several speakers and concluded with the laying of wreaths and a performance of TAPS.  After the official ceremony, a social gathering took place in the community center.

Grant Schneider maybe it is because McDill AFB is located in Tampa. 

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert you are so right about that!
