Disciples Chaplain Danny Thompson will help host a Veterans Day celebration in Arizona to honor armed service veterans. The program will take place at Manistee Manor, an independent living center in Glendale, Ariz., on Nov. 11. Residents from Waymark Gardens and Lifestyles of Glendale retirement centers will also attend the memorial program. Thompson works with Disciples Benevolent Services Chaplaincy Care program. Participating in the Veterans Day Celebration will be Chaplain Edward "Skip" Hughes and Chaplain Dale Copsey. Both are retired military chaplains living in the Phoenix area.
“It is going to be a very special celebration for our veterans, and also people whose relatives were veterans, said Thompson, former vice president of specialized ministries for Disciples Home Missions. The veterans will be memorialized on a “Wall of Fame.” A reception will follow the ceremony. Those who plan to attend should contact Jodi at 623-915-5039 by Nov. 9.
