(MENA) The Ouachita Regional Hospice hosted a talk and demonstration for the adult clients at the PCDC – Wellness Center, located at 1410R Amsterdam Street in Mena on Friday.
The hospice is currently striving towards a “Level 5 – We Honor Veterans” status. One of the obligations in achieving that status is to host a veterans event towards an “Invisible” population.
The local color guard and a recruiter with the Arkansas National Guard came and spoke to the clients and demonstrated the proper techniques of folding a flag in a ceremony, along with playing Taps, while telling of the history behind the traditions.
The flag was presented to the center, thanks to the generous donation of The Beasley-Wood Funeral Home, who supplied the flag.
