Vets acknowledged at Kenton

By Paulette Wiens

Veteran Appreciation Day was held at Woodworth Millennium Museum on Wednesday, Sept. 3 from 2-4 p.m. Kenton’s own Jack Houston and John Roseveare were in the Second World War and Mike Ramsden was in the air force and did some peace keeping missions. Those in attendance visited the veterans and were served refreshments. Memorabilia from both World Wars and a book of letters from  veterans to their families back home were on display. We appreciate all those who visited the museum to make this event  a success. May we always remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and shake the hand of those we have in our midst.
