Isleta UMC honors veterans

| November 7, 2016

OXFORD TOWNSHIP – Veterans of all eras were honored during a special ceremony held Nov. 6 at Isleta United Methodist Church.

“If it wasn’t for you brave men and women we would not be able to come to this place of God to pray or gather as we have here today,” said Jeff Hardesty, who read the list of veterans who attended the service.

The program had many highlights including a solo performance on the guitar of “Some Gave All” by Jagger Morrison, the reading of the poem, “What is a Veteran?” by Father Denis Edward O’Brien and a flag folding demonstration by the Newcomerstown Honor Guard.

Attendees were asked to bring a donation for the Louis Stokes VA Center in Cleveland and those were blessed right before everyone was invited to enjoy dinner in the church fellowship hall.

“It’s are honor and privilege to recognize all of you (veterans) here today,” Hardesty said.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
