Veterans Day: A Different Display

This year the FBCLS Historical Committee decided to display our veterans in a different manner. Each photograph (now a total of 61) is currently being displayed in the sanctuary foyer as seen in the pictures below. Each photo is captioned with the person’s name and a little bit about their service to their county.

During Sunday’s service (November 9, 2008) a short Powerpoint presentation similar to the movie seen here was shown and a leaflet using the Veteran’s Day logo, seen above, contained the names of the individuals and our thanks.

Veterans were also asked to stand in our traditional worship service. Many of the men and women standing have not yet submitted their pictures to the historical committee. It’s not too late! Now that the images are digitized here at the church history blog it is very easy to scan the images and add them to our tribute here and to the movie which can be shown yearly.

Veterans are encouraged to drop their picture by the church office, contact any member of the historical committee, or email the committee at fbclshistory@mail.com.
