Fran Minakowski of Maryland Public Television graciously sent me announcements of two upcoming celebrations for Vietnam veterans:
On Thursday, March 29, the Hospice of the Chesapeake will hold its fourth annual “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration.” Doors open at 4 pm, and the event begins at 5 pm at the Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport Hotel, 1736 W. Nursery Rd., Linthicum. Please register by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 443-837-1513.
On Friday, March 30, Gilchrist, a nonprofit organization that provides hospice and elder medical care, will host its first “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration.” Doors open at 9 am, and the event begins at 10 am at Martin’s West, 6817 Dogwood Rd., Windsor Mill. This free event features breakfast, music and camaraderie in celebration of Vietnam veterans and their families.

I’ll be attending both. Hope to see you there.
