Letter to the Editor: Gratitude for the Salute to Veterans Dinner

Many area veterans, along with family and friends, gathered at the Corpus Christi Social Hall on Nov. 9 for the second annual Salute to Veterans dinner and program – a community celebration honoring our veterans that would not be possible without parish and community support. 

The Catholic community of the greater Sturgeon Bay area thanks the following individuals and organizations for their outstanding support of the dinner and program: 

• The four Catholic parishes (St. Joseph in Sturgeon Bay, St. Peter and Paul in Institute, Holy Name of Mary in Maplewood, and Corpus Christi in Sturgeon Bay). Special thanks to the church secretaries and coordinators for their excellent assistance! 

• Beth Wartella, VSO of Door County 

• Rep. Mike Gallagher 

• Jason and Laura Estes of Sonny’s Pizzeria in Sturgeon Bay 

• DC Printing in Sturgeon Bay for publicity, programs and raffle printing 

• Maas Floral for centerpieces 

• Econo Foods for appetizers 

• Knights of Columbus 

• St. Ann Society of Corpus Christi Parish for decorations, table service and desserts 

• St. John Bosco School 

• Sturgeon Bay High School Band volunteers 

• Community Choir of Door County 

• Quad Catholic parish youth volunteers 

We appreciate our veterans and look forward to honoring them again next year!
