The Sevastopol Elementary School gymnasium was packed Friday for the annual Door County Veterans Day Celebration. The 70-minute ceremony included the Sevastopol band and choir performing patriotic music along with recognizing all branches of the armed forces and individuals from many of the veteran organizations in Door County. Keynote speaker was Marine veteran and Congressman Mike Gallagher. Gallagher says it was a special day to pay tribute to our nation’s veterans, those living and those who have past.
Gallagher presented a special plaque to Colonel Tim Lawrie’s family for his 26 years in the Army where he earned a Silver Star and Purple Heart. Lawrie passed away in August and was to be the speaker at Friday’s Veterans Day Celebration, according to Veterans Services Officer, Scott McFarlane.
