The tribute will feature 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.
Keynote speakers for the tribute will be 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 and encourage all to attend.”
