We were honored to have two keynote speakers; first was State Senator Joe Pennacchio who gave an insightful and poignant speech, and the second was local citizen George Nader, who related his experience as a youth in Beirut, Lebanon, surviving the embassy bombing in 1983. Both speeches well worth your time.
