(ROCKWALL, TX – May 31, 2017) Right at 200 people turned out for the Liberty Heights Gracious Retirement Living Memorial Day celebration for its military veteran residents on Monday, May 29. The crowd enjoyed a free lunch and a short address from local U.S. Marine Corps veteran Trace Johannesen, who’s also a member of event co-host American Legion Terry Fisher Post 117. To conclude the event, the veterans gathered outside to take part in a special balloon release.
“We ended up having way more people than expected but we accommodated everyone!” said Julie Hart, Liberty Heights activities coordinator. “I had several people tell me that was the best Memorial Day celebration they’ve ever been a part of!”
