Church of the Messiah honors Veterans with Veterans Day Dinner and Concert

The Griffin Family with Ed Ganster
The Church of the Messiah in downtown Winter Garden honored our brave Veterans with a free Dinner and Musical Presentation on the eve of Veterans Day. Dave Gillum, Music and Facilities Coordinator lead a concert production called "Homeland" and all were moved. This was an outstanding concert about the USA which honored our Veterans, emphasizing that this country was founded on the principle "One Nation Under God". The Concert was preceded  a delicious picnic style dinner. Guests of honor were 2 recipients of mortgage free disability friendly homes built by "Home At Last": Specialist Marcus Griffin, a 5 year US Army Veteran hero who sustained serious injuries in a IED explosion and his wife, Andrea and 2 boys Isaac and Joseph; and Sergeant Major Patrick Corcoran, a 23 year US Army Veteran who sustained serious injury when his vehicle was hit by and IED and his wife, Becky.
