World War II veterans honored at LOW Veterans Club Christmas Party 

The LOW Veterans Club held its annual Christmas Party on December 7th at the LOW Clubhouse and honored all veterans in attendance.  (There were more than 100 people present!) The World War II veterans were guests of the Club and provided special recognition as well as free meals.  That was also true for their spouses and caregivers. 

Specific World War II veterans included (in photo below):

Luis Amador (Coast Guard), James Cantrell (Navy), Link Landis (Army), Frank Liberti (Navy), William Phillips (Army), Alex Salustri (Army), and Ossie Schmidt (Army).

Additionally, the annual Veterans Club Christmas Dinner featured a Club-sponsored Christmas tree decorated with American flags; service identified Christmas bulbs, as well as pictures of uniformed veterans. The tree project was headed by Ted Cryblskey (shown below) and Fred Pullis.

In addition, the Veterans Club had a Missing Comrade table. The image of the plaque on the table is enlarged to allow you to read the importance of the various articles included on the table.


A special thanks to Nancy King and the LOW Garden Club for their efforts in decorating the Club House for the Christmas season.

The LOW Veterans Club wishes a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all residents of Lake of the Woods.   Also, each of us wishes everybody a Happy New Year.
