MEDINA – Veterans Day was celebrated a bit differently this year at Orchard Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

Due to the pandemic, the site was unable to have the usual gun salute ceremony by local VFW and American Legion members.

Instead, the 18 veterans were recognized with certificates of appreciation to commend them for their efforts in support of our United States Armed Forces.

Each veteran also received a button to wear donated by The Print Shop. Residents also enjoyed coffee and Case-Nic cookies while listening to patriotic music.

Sharon Laskett, Physical Therapy Aide, presents a certificate to Charles Kellogg, her step-father, for his service in the US Marines.

Frank Ranallo accepts his plaque for service in the US Marines from Jamie Murphy, Activities Director.

Flag cookies and veterans’ pins were available to the 18 veterans at Orchard Rehabilitation and Nursing.
