Veterans Honored During September Meeting in Perryville

GFWC Woman’s Club of Ste. Genevieve traveled to the Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial in Perryville to see the paver that our club donated when they were making preparations to open the memorial. This memorial is home to several monuments honoring our nation’s veterans and those currently serving.

We were given a tour of the Veteran Memorial Wall. Members were able to look up any names of people who were lost in the Vietnam War and find their names on the wall. We also collected snacks to be donated to a local home where many Veterans stay. Each week a volunteer took some of the snacks to the men who enjoyed the special treats.
