I would like to extend my deep appreciation to all who made the Spirit of '45 event at Atria Darien so special for all the WWll veterans who joined us.
Senator Blumenthal, Congressman Himes, State Senators Duff and Leone, State Representative Wood and Selectman Lundeen honored each veteran with certificates and a letter of recognition for their service to our country.
I would like to extend a special thank you to Phil Kraft, commander of the local VFW Post 6933, for our American Flag. With Mr. Kraft leading us in the Pledge of Allegiance on Sunday at our Spirit of '45 event, we proudly put our hands to our hearts.
It truly was a special day at Atria on Sunday for the members of our greatest generation and their families.
