WWII Victory Celebration Wrap-Up!

The WWII Victory Celebration was a “victorious” success!  What a great night, thank you all for coming out and thanks to all the wonderful sponsors, vendors, and volunteers that made this event happen! It was also a terrific turnout of veterans/active military and made even more special by the large number of WWII vets that were able to attend!  GBVS is very proud to be able to give a fitting tribute to the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.  Below are links for a superb selection of photos and videos thanks to Tom Hagar and Chris Hugo.  Please contact GBVS before using any media.  Also click on the “Events” link above for more!  Looking forward to doing this again next year!
