World War II veterans Wayne Springsteen and Herb Tovar were honored guests at the District 10 American Legion annual banquet at Veterans Hall in Niles (Fremont) on March 19, 2014. A band of top junior high and high school musicians entertained guests with jazz and patriotic compositions.
Honorees Springsteen and Tovar were presented with Certificates of Appreciation by Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison and received recognition from State Senator Ellen Corbett and State Representative Bob Wieckowski. An unexpected surprise was the presentation of handmade quilts, stitched by Jerrie Powell and Julie Colburn.
