We salute our Bandon Veterans!
Bandon area veterans gathered on Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Bandon High School gym for the annual photo sponsored by Joseph Bain of Bain Insurance Agency. Following the photo, veterans gathered with high school students in Stephanie Murphy's BHS English class in the cafeteria for cookies, juice and coffee and to talk to the students about their service.
