MEDINA – Orchard Manor Rehabilitation & Nursing Center unveiled its new Veterans Memorial Plaque just in time for Veterans Day.

The idea to acknowledge and honor deceased Orchard Manor veterans with a plaque was submitted months ago as a suggestion by Lori Zdrojewski, LPN.

Dave Denny, administrator, assigned the project to Jamie Murphy, activities director. She sought out local sign maker Greg Stanton of Stanton Signs to create the Wall of Heroes plaque, designed by Wayne Dorpfeld D’Zines, which includes names of veterans who passed away at Orchard Manor.

To commemorate the event, members of Medina and Albion VFW & American Legion performed a gun salute in the courtyard, followed by the playing of Taps.

Orchard Manor veterans also joined in as the entire group recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Residents were then treated to coffee with donuts compliments of Medina Dunkin’ Donuts.
