A Patriotic Celebration Honors Veterans at Watercrest Spanish Springs Assisted Living and Memory Care

VERO BEACH, Fla., Nov. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A patriotic celebration was in full swing last week at Watercrest Spanish Springs Assisted Living and Memory Care as veterans and veteran spouses were honored during their annual Veterans Day event. With the help of local community partners, the Watercrest team ensured each veteran was recognized for their military service with the utmost respect and appreciation.

Residents, family and community partners gathered for the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance and dedication to the veterans; while the local honor guard led the crowd in a gun salute and presentation of flags.

Meg Beck, chair of the armed forces committee through the Republican Federated Women of The Villages greeted each veteran and delivered homemade cards, handwritten to each veteran thanking them for their service. The tribute and pinning ceremony were led by the Republican Federated Women of The Villages and partners from Compassionate Care Hospice, recognizing each veteran in their branch of service for their dedication and sacrifice. A moment of silence ensued as speakers gave heartwarming tributes and flowers to the widowed men and women whose spouses had served in the military.

With the closing of ceremonies, the mood lightened as dozens of guests enjoyed an outdoor barbeque with live patriotic musical performance by Doug B. and a scrumptious ice cream sundae bar hosted by Concierge Care.

"We are so grateful to our community partners and dedicated team of Watercrest associates working together to give our resident veterans the honor, respect and appreciation they so deserve for their service to our country," says Kayla Ramos, Resident Lifestyle Director at Watercrest Spanish Springs.

The Veterans Day community celebration is an aspect of Watercrest CARES, a company-wide movement by Watercrest Senior Living Group encompassing their common unity initiatives such as Connectivity.
