Winter Ranch Veterans' Day Celebration

At Winter Ranch we have many celebrations throughout the season.  Today is Veterans' Day and today we celebrated that.  Many people came dressed in their Red, White and Blue.  Our Activity Directors had a nice program.

Lee was in charge of the video operation.  We listened to Kate Smith sing "God Bless America" and Billie Ray Cyrus sang "Some Gave All."

There are always a lot of tears during taps!
