Allenwood Independent Living Apartments hosted a ceremony to honor its resident veterans and Memorial Day on Thursday, May 23rd.  Over 100 residents, family members, friends, and staff attended.  Commander Gerald Carton of the Grand Isle VFW Post spoke and Taps was played on trombone by George Voland.  After the ceremony residents gathered around beautiful memory boards that staff created with military photos and memorabilia from various residents, along with memories and stories in their own words.  Thank you to all of our Veterans!
