Learning heroes’ stories at the Veterans Memorial


ANTHEM – The theme of this year’s summer reading program at the North Valley Regional Library is ‘Every hero has a story.’ Through a visit to the Anthem Veterans Memorial, summer reading participants got to hear local heroes’ stories firsthand.

Summer reading program participants gathered at the Anthem Veterans Memorial as part of the library’s program. At the memorial, they learned United States military history and personal experiences of local veterans. Anthem residents WWII Navy veteran John Ravita and active-duty Army Captain Jose Torres, Bronze Star recipient, each shared their experiences in the military. The lessons were conducted by Anthem Veterans Memorial Support Team volunteer Liz Turner.

Classes, clubs and organizations of any age are invited to schedule educational lessons at the AVM. Contact Liz Turner, for more information.
