This morning at 8AM around 300 residents gathered around the flagpole at the Montecito Clubhouse for this wonderful event where we have the opportunity to show our heartfelt thanks to the Veterans who have served our nation.
Tom Hutson, LT. Colonel, Retired, US Army and President of the SCSH Veterans Club here in our community welcomed our guests: invocation speaker Lt. Johnson; the Guest Speaker Sargeant Major Zapata; the Shadow Hills High School ROTC who raised the flags; and TAPS by the Shadow Hills High School Band.
A number of dignitaries, including the Indio City Council, a State Senator were also in attendance as well as all of our Board members save Joan Dzuro who had been asked to participate in a Memorial Day Event in the City of Indio.
This event is sponsored by the brave men and women of the Veterans Club.
