Donna Hill-Herendeen decided to apply to Washington D.C. to be a commemorative partner. Her application was accepted, and she quickly sprung into action to start work on the committee's first event. This sunday, the organization is honoring more than 173 Vietnam vets in the community.
"We're having it at Farmington Park, County Route 8, at noon," explained said Hill-Herendeen. She mentioned that there will be a "a formal tribute to the vets, with speakers." After the ceremony, refreshments will also be served.
The association hopes to be part of the national organization for years to come.
