These pictures will be displayed on the video screens at Wednesday Night Supper on November 8 and in services on Sunday, November 12. If you are a veteran or have an immediate family member who is a veteran, please send a digital copy of a picture (preferably in uniform close to the time of active duty) to Please include the veteran’s name and branch of service with all submissions by November 5. We will be adding to our pictures from last year, so if you submitted a picture last year, no need to resubmit.
