Dedication to Veterans Program

Many attendees were present at the  Dedication to Veterans Program at Brunswick Universal Health Care in Bolivia on Friday, May 23rd at 2:00 pm.

The above photo is Mr. Charlie Fullwood and his son and daughter-in-law.  Charlie served in the CC Camps which stands for Civilian Conservation Corps which was formed in March 1933.  The CC Camps was one of the first New Deal programs.  It was a public works project intended to promote environmental conservation and to build good citizens through vigorous, disciplined outdoor labor.  In less than 10 years the Civilian Conservation Corps built more than 800 parks and planted nearly 3 billion trees nationwide.

Lisa English from the Battle of Rockkfish DAR chapter presented her program on POW/MIA Empty Table.  There are still 42 North Carolinians that are MIA.

Jackie Craft, Regent gave certificates to the Veterans for their dedicated service to our country. And Vice-Regent Betsy Pessetto gave each Veteran with a pocket flag and a Constitution book mark.

Other DAR members present were:  Pat Gooding, Vicki Kay, Connie Hendrix, Gwen Causey, Fran Carlsen and special member who is a resident at Brunswick Universal Health Care, Mary Lou White.  Mary Lou was chosen Prom Queen last week at the center.  We all congratulate Mary Lou.
