Special Pinning Ceremonies
Past Pinning Ceremonies
Memorial Day - May 25, 2015
Veterans Day - November 11, 2014
From Mt. Airy to Havre de Grace, Elkridge, Columbia and Towson, nearly 300 veterans were honored and their sacrifices acknowledged. Members of Gilchrist’s staff and Gilchrist volunteers offered pins of gratitude and remembrance to all resident veterans, and not just those who are part of our hospice program.
Independence Day - July 4, 2013
In 2013, we coordinated with Oak Crest Retirement Village to have two ceremonies – one on July 4th and one on Veterans Day – in which we pinned 195 veterans.
More Information About Pinning Ceremonies
Gilchrist offers smaller-scale pinning ceremonies to patients and their families on a regular basis. Our veteran volunteers will travel to the patient’s place of residence and conduct the ceremony to honor and recognize the veteran’s service and sacrifice. To view them, please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or Twitter.
