Members of the Brush High School Marching Band performed this weekend at a ceremony celebrating Northern Ohio’s first home ownership project for a Service Connected Disabled Veteran. On Saturday, March 1, 2014, the Purple Heart Homes, the City of South Euclid and One South Euclid held a MISSION COMPLETE CEREMONY at St. John’s Lutheran Church. The ceremony celebrated the completion of the home at 1171 Avondale Road for Demond and Amber Taylor and saluted over 120 volunteers, sponsors, and donors that worked together on the project.
Keynote speakers for this event included General Charles Swannek, Rtd. Former Commander of the 82nd Airborne in Iraq and 2013 CNN HERO Finalist and co-founder Dale Beatty. Brief comments were also given by Navy Cross Medal recipient and Hero, Sam Felton and local resident, Rtd. Admiral Bill O'Dinnell.
The entire project will be featured in a documentary from start to Mission Complete. The documentary, which was grant funded, will be sent to national media and Channel 5 will be reporting. The project has already been featured on ABC Night Line Prime Time, CNN, Reader's Digest, Time Magazine, and more.
