John Clarke Chapter members have been active in the community this November honoring local veterans. Below is member Ann Hall at her work place-Piedmont Walton Hospital. Ann created a display honoring the many veterans who work at the hospital, as well as the loved ones of employees who have served. The display included a white table with an empty chair representing the men and women currently away from home serving their country. Additionally, the exhibit included emblems from the different branches of service with names of Piedmont Walton veterans written in orange. Employees who are veterans received tokens of appreciation.
