To the Valley News:
Once again I would like to thank all the volunteers from the area churches for putting on a tremendous Veteran's Day dinner on Nov. 11 for the veterans of the Willsboro/Essex community. All the veterans in attendance truly appreciate the recognition from the community for the service they gave and in many cases are still giving to the country.
A special thanks to Rick Sayward for his great talk on the Wounded Veterans Project. Also to Ed Collins for relating the events of his meaningful trip to the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.
A thank you also to the Willsboro Central School students who made the decorations and place mats and the school board for allowing the use of the cafeteria for the event.
It was a great and thoughtful time for us all.
Charlie Lustig, Willsboro
