It is wonderful to see so many girls and their families at this local ceremony - which grows each year. From babes in arms to veterans, the event brings the community together. There was even a standing ovation for one regular attendee who just celebrated his 100th birthday.
Appropriately, the national website published a blog post today by a former Ranger from Mackenzie Heights, who laid the wreath with one of our 82nd Brownies last year. After attending the event for years, being part of the ceremony deepened her connections with the reasons we recognize those who serve our country. You can read her post here.
