Veteran's Day Concert and Spices Thai Cafe

Aloha Everyone,

This morning we attended the Veteran's Day Concert at our granddaughter's school. The entire student body as well as parents and grandparents  participated in this annual event. Our granddaughter plays flute in Intermediate band and jazz band. Among faculty and parents present were veterans representing all branches of the United States military. The two hours program was often poignant and moving.

"The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.” — Jeff Miller

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” — President John F. Kennedy

Afterwards, we went out for a wonderful lunch at Spices Thai Cafe in Piazza Carmel.
