The Masonic Care Community in Utica held its annual Veterans Day Celebration today.

“Our residents and staff have given so much of themselves to our country, and we like to honor that,” says Executive Director, Robert Raffle.

“These men and women have served in World War II, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan. They sacrificed so much for our freedom – we are thrilled to offer them recognition for all they have done for future generations.”

Along with musical selections, prayers and acknowledgements, children from the Masonic Care Community's Child Care Center joined the ceremonies as part of their intergenerational programming.
