Tribute to hospitalized veterans held at Gorgas Park

The sixth annual Hospitalized Veterans Tribute concert was held at Gorgas Park in Roxborough on Saturday. Community members came out to show their gratitude and appreciation for veterans.

Veterans from Coatesville VA Medical hospital arrived with a motorcycle escort, were fed lunch and enjoyed live music by The Merion Concert Band, The Savoy Company and more. The veterans served in wars dating back to the Vietnam War. 

“These men and women have sacrificed their lives for our country and this is our small way of showing them that we care and that they have not been forgotten,” said Bruce Hoffman, who organized the tribute.
