With nine Veteran resident in their care at Blountstown Health and Rehabilitation Center in Blountstown, Activities Director Connie Gottfireid decided to honor them and make their day extra special with a steak dinner. Calhoun County Veterans Director Eric Daniels was contacted and was eager to help with the event. Veterans George Perry, Leonard Maio, Thomas Adams, and Dewey Wells enjoyed their steaks and shared some of their memories. Local VFW members, Woody Stewart, Heber Meeks, and Terell Revell presented flags and thanked the Veterans for their service.
Daniels encourages everyone to go by local nursing homes and visit our veterans. A bigger event is being planned for next year’s Veterans Day.
