Murrieta Celebrates Veterans

Veteran’s Day is a special time at Renaissance Village Murrieta. This year, Activities Director, Laurel Gerdhart, put together many activities for the residents to participate in throughout the day to celebrate veterans. Residents began the day with a flag pinning ceremony. Brian Taube, Executive Director, Trevor Stokes, ONR, Inc.’s Director of Rehabilitation, and Maria Garcia, Director of Community Relations, pinned a flag on each veteran. In addition, they received recognition for their branches of services and a salute. After the ceremony, Ron Hallock gave his presentation of War on the Home Front, which discussed what things were like at home during World War II. Ron also brought parts of his extensive collection of military memorabilia.

Later that afternoon, residents put together care packages for Support Our Troops. Each care package included various snacks and needed items for male and female troops. Residents also packed handwritten cards and a group photo to personalize the boxes further. Guitarist Mike Finn performed at the weekly Happy Hour with an exceptional Support Out Troops theme.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance

We invited Ron Hallock back for Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. Ron discussed Pearl Harbor from all angles, and resident Don P. shared his own first-hand experience from that day. In addition, resident Wayne E. gifted Ron his father’s Army uniform jacket, Honorable Discharge certificate, and draft card to share with his presentations. Wayne decided to offer this gift because he believes in the great work that Ron is doing in educating others about history as a whole.
