A Veterans Remembrance Program was hosted by St. Francis Manor on Thursday, November 12, to honor local veterans.  Over 120 people attended the event including St. Francis Manor and Seeland Park residents as well as veterans from the Grinnell community.  Activity Directors Caitlin Mellick and Abby Renbarger presented the program and Barb Tininenko played patriotic music on the piano.  The Grinnell Ceremonial Unit represented by Ron Davis and Jennifer Stiles assisted with the program and presented the flag to Seeland Park resident Agnes Mikel, in honor of her late husband and veteran, Wilford (Mike) Mikel, who served in the Marines from 1950-1954.  Attendees enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided by the Culinary Department prior to the program.
