Veterans Outreach Center celebrates new pergola

Local News

This Veterans Day, Rochester is giving thanks for the men and women who dedicated their lives to serve us.

As part of the day’s events, a ceremony was held at the Veterans Outreach Center, where a pergola was constructed to honor veterans, thanks to several local businesses.

Behind the pergola there is also a poem that describes the sacrifice veterans have made.

“If you read the words on the poem, it shows them how much they’re appreciated and honored in our community and I think it’s a nice addition to our facility here,” said Laura Stradley, Veterans Outreach Center executive director.

The pergola is intended to be a place of solace for veterans to quietly reflect.
