Through the serendipity of the Internet and my long friendship with Betsy Otter Thompson, I was able to become the proud owner of three spectacular paintings by artists Catherine Victorson. I don’t know the artist’s name for the three pieces yet, but I’ll let you know when I find out.
I’m looking for framing ideas that will compliment these works, so please hit me up if you have any.
The dedication parade will start at 1 p.m. at Edgewood Road and Long Acre Lane, then head west along Edgewood Road to the monument at Veterans Square where the dedication ceremony will take place.
The community will gather there – at the corner of Edgewood and Heacock roads – to celebrate honor, patriotism and pride as the monument is publicly dedicated to every veteran from Yardley-Makefield who served their country.
Serving as parade marshal is distinguished Vietnam veteran Russell Davidson, a combat demolition specialist who is serving his fourth term as commander of Yardley-Makefield VFW Post 6393.
The parade includes plenty of veterans and the award-winning Pennsbury High School Marching Band.
Dedication ceremonies will include a performance of an original anthem, “Come Home America,” by Marcus Goldhaber, and keynote a address by Pennsbury Manor site director Douglas Miller, a military historian.
