VERO BEACH, Fla., Dec. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- A patriotic celebration lasted through the weekend at Watercrest Columbia Assisted Living and Memory Care with special events to honor resident veterans and spouses of veterans.
Kicking off the weekend, residents, family and community partners gathered for a dedication to veterans and unveiling of the Veterans Honor Wall. Special guests in attendance were Colonel Burns from Fort Jackson, Deputy Officer Robinson, and Minister Glenn Brown with the non-profit organization Veterans Operations. The honorary guests recognized each veteran and spouses of veterans with a heartwarming tribute and appreciation of service.
Residents also enjoyed a special visit from the Ridge View High School Student Council and a decadent Sunday Brunch preceding Sunday's highlighted event: a Classic Car Cruise-In. Dozens of vintage and customized automobiles adorned the lawn as residents and visitors admired the line-up and swapped stories of favorite vehicles from years past.
