Veterans Watch a Boat Parade
Two of our residents enjoy the American Legion Boat Parade
Newport Mesa was fortunate enough to receive five complimentary tickets to the Newport Beach Boat Parade from the American Legion of Newport Beach. Three of our associates accompanied two veteran residents to watch the parade. Resident Don Holmes served as an Army Private during his service, and resident Robert Martin served in the Navy. Robert also happens to be a member of American Legion for over thirty years.
The two veterans thoroughly enjoyed sitting beside the water and viewing the various boats that floated by. Along with the show, they enjoyed tacos, hot chocolate and pastries for dessert. It was a nice way to spend a cool winter evening by the sea.
