The Embassy Suites in Larimer County (Loveland) is the site for a Salute to Veterans. Meal and entertainment free to all veterans and their families. The crowd this years was over 800 people.
Seventy booths were set up offering services to veterans and others. None were selling anything. My sister is on the board of the Greeley Community Grief Center (among others - busy woman) and staffed their booth this year. She asked me to help.
It was an enjoyable four hours. Other than one Senator's booth (he had a booth - he wasn't there) there was no politics involved. An Elvis impersonator band played, school kids sang the anthem, and Marine ROTC did the colors.
I'm glad I participated and my sister and I think we may have done some good with some people suffering losses.
