Wooster Rotary honored our members, our family members (i.e. spouses, children) and community members who are veterans at our November 11th meeting. Major General (Ret) Tod J. Carmony was the day's speaker.  He noted the impact that a nation of WWII veterans had on the generation after them, as parents and as community leaders, and how many of those veterans shaped his own passion to serve.  MG Carmony is a Wooster native who served 39 years in the US Army; in addition to numerous deployments around the world, he also deployed to Mississippi as part of the Katrina Relief mission in 2005.

Madelaine Dwier and Wayne Bare greeted guests as they arrived.  Alan Kiefer (not pictured) helped to seat disabled guests.
John Scott set up the POW/MIA table as he does each year, and the WHS Interact students delivered an outstanding moment of remembrance.
The 555th (Triple Nickel) Honors Detachment presented the Colors AFTER having a bite to eat together.  Seated with them: Staff Sergeant (Ret) David Barber and his wife, Sara.  Mr. Barber gave the Invocation.
President Kim Sayers and Secretary Lynn Moomaw presided over the 2019 Veterans Day program on November 11.
