Fairview Park Chamber and Others Honor Veterans
The 100th Bomb Group was host to a Veterans Day luncheon put on by the Power of More Chambers of Commerce. All six chambers invited their member veterans and their families to be recognized and honored. Over 125 people members attended, including Rocky River Mayor Pam Bobst and Representative Nan Baker. Fairview Park Chamber President Tim Sacko brought two generations of his family - Dad John Sacko, who is a Vietnam veteran, and his Grandfather William “Bud” Szabrak, who is a veteran of the Korean War.
The keynote speaker was John Reiss, Executive Director of the Cuyahoga County Veterans Service Commission. He spoke on veterans benefits. All 24 veterans present, ranging from age 25 to 97, received a veteran pin during the emotional ceremony.
