A Veterans Day Tribute

Lexington Medical Center hosted a Veterans Day Tribute at Lexington Town Hall on Wednesday, November 11th, 2009. Veterans and members of the community were cordially invited to attend this free event that honored our nation’s heroes.

The tribute featured a patriotic musical selection by the Palmetto Mastersingers. The chorus of approximately 60 men has performed throughout South Carolina, nationally and internationally. Appearances have included the White House, Carnegie Hall, the National Cathedral, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. A few of the Palmetto Mastersingers are Lexington Medical Center doctors.

Keynote speakers were from Honor Flight South Carolina, an organization dedicated to taking World War II veterans to the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. Speakers will be Bill Dukes, Honor Flight South Carolina founder; Murray Price, decorated World War II B-24 pilot and Honor Flight participant; and Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott, who has served as a guardian on Honor Flight trips.

“Lexington Medical Center is proud to partner with the Palmetto Mastersingers and the town of Lexington to honor one of our country’s most precious resources – our veterans,” said Barbara Willm, vice president of Community Relations for Lexington Medical Center. “We are pleased to be part of such a tribute.”

More than 200 people attended.
