Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) November 08, 2014
Heritage Woods of Gurnee, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is hosting a flag-raising ceremony at 2 p.m. on Nov. 11.
The community, which is located at 3775 Grand Ave. in Gurnee, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
Bill Hossman, the son-in-law of Heritage Woods resident Rosemary Asta, will be the guest speaker during the ceremony. He will thank veterans for their service and talk about his mother-in-law's trip to the nation's capital as part of a 2013 Honor Flight. Honor Flights pay tribute to veterans by taking them to Washington, D.C. for a day of honor and remembrance.
Community members are also invited to stop by Heritage Woods between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 11 to view a veterans-themed display. Items on display will include photographs of residents who have served in the military, memorabilia and books about previous wars.
