8th PDAC hosts a big barbecue for war veterans

Mem­bers of the 8th Po­lice Dis­trict Ad­vis­ory Coun­cil re­cently vis­ited the Delaware Val­ley Vet­er­ans Home on Southamp­ton Road to hon­or the vets’ ser­vice to the United States by spon­sor­ing a bar­be­cue for them.

PDAC chair­man Harry Son­ntag thanked the vets for their ser­vice, say­ing, “Your ser­vice to our coun­try and every cit­izen who lives in it will nev­er be for­got­ten. We hope that this small token of ap­pre­ci­ation by our mem­bers and vo­lun­teers from the com­munity re­minds you all that there are many people who love you, re­spect you and ap­pre­ci­ate the sac­ri­fices you have made for us.”

Also on hand to vo­lun­teer their ser­vices were loc­al mem­bers of the Pat­ri­ot Guard Riders, a di­verse na­tion­al group of mo­tor­cycle en­thu­si­asts who sup­port U.S. mil­it­ary vet­er­ans.

Mem­bers of the 8th PDAC led by re­cord­ing sec­ret­ary Marge Phil­ippi per­formed “Krys­tal Bells” mu­sic to en­ter­tain res­id­ents of the vet­er­ans home be­fore the group capped off the af­ter­noon with a bingo game in the home’s com­munity room. Win­ners re­ceived coupons re­deem­able at the home’s Canteen store. ••
