The 100-year-old Dayton Shrine Band came to the Dayton VA Band Stand to play for our Veterans and their guests. Over 70 people enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment. The program was distributed to all attendees, and special Recognition Certificates were given to our Veterans. The theme of this concert was “Thanks Yanks!”

This was the kick-off for a succession of monthly music entertainment planned for next year. Kenneth Spann and Louis Long, of the Dayton VA Recreation Therapy Department, along with the Dayton Shrine Band Director, Major Patrick Dugan, and two AVHC volunteers, planned and implemented this first of the series. The future proposal is to have a “Summer Series” of concerts next year during the warmer weather. Thanks to the Dayton VA volunteers and employees who made this concert possible!
