Veterans Honored at
2015 Alexandria Fun Days
The Alexandria Fun Days USO show was a great success thanks to the many friends, neighbors and families that participated in this special event.
Veterans from all branches of the armed forces were on hand to help celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. It was a special honor to have four WWII veterans joining us in this commemoration. Also on hand was an exceptional community choir who made this a memorable time for all in attendance. Our evening’s events included music from the jazz ensemble, Sentimental Journey and a trio, Be Not Flat. Thanks to everyone for coming and being a part of a wonderful evening of fun, music and nostalgia.
