SALUTE to SERVICE (September 11, 2014)
In appreciation of the veterans of Lawrence County, a FREE event was held for the public at Edison Manor (222 West Edison Avenue, New Castle PA 16101) on September 11, 2014 at 6pm. Veterans were encouraged to attend. There were invited speakers, an all American dinner, and videographer Bert Gerstnecker was on site to interview and video any of the veterans who wanted their story told. A short video of the interviews, pictures and narratives conducted at the Salute to Service event is posted below.
