The Holy Cross Ladies Aid will be honoring our veterans with a meal on Sunday, November 11th at 11:00am in the New Fellowship Hall.

A slideshow will be presented and will include the names, dates of service, and pictures of our veterans. We ask that any veteran please submit a picture and the details of your service (including branch, rank, and years of service) to the church office for inclusion in this presentation, if you have not done so in the past. We also will have tables set up for any memorabilia you may like to share with everyone. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to the church office by Wednesday, November 7th.
