Letter to the editor: Patriotic Day was appreciated


To the editor,

I want to acknowledge everyone that gives of their time to put on the Patriotic Day at the Farmington High School. On Nov. 7 a dinner was served by many, many volunteers to veterans in and around the area. I don’t have the exact number but it must have been well over a thousand. Vietnam vets were then honored in the auditorium with a wonderful and moving program as has been in the past with World War II and Korean vets.
