Dear Editor,

Fortuna Senior Services was honored to present our 'Tribute to Veterans' on Nov. 11. We had tremendous support from many individuals and businesses and would like to acknowledge their many contributions. Our deep appreciation goes to Steven Justus, who praised veterans of all wars and then told about the Honor Flights to Washington DC. Also, a big thank you to Rick Center, our Master of Ceremonies, Mike Gibbs, Betty Diehl, Don Hicks and Richard Philipsen, for the music, the Eel River Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution for the wonderful refreshments, the Fortuna American Legion and Veterans of Foreign wars for use of the building, the California Conservation Corp, and the Mad River Community Veteran's Honor Guard.

A major sponsor was News Channel 3. We also would like to thank our generous opportunity drawing donors; Renner Petroleum, the Ivanhoe Restaurant, and Ferndale Meat Company. The turnout was beyond our expectations, so thank you to everyone who attended this inspiring program.

Carol Kinser

Fortuna Senior Services Board of Directors
