Every year the CFAR community celebrates the holiday season by having a meal together, raising a little money, raising consciousness about an issue, and recognizing at least two outstanding community-based heroes/sheroes. This year we will be adding a new community award and discussing issues surrounding veterans. We will have speakers who will discuss life after military service and what it’s like to serve and support veterans. We never want anyone to not be able to attend due to the money.

This presentation is like other documentaries based on wartime experiences. The stories we tell stem from live interviews with local veterans of WW II. The themes of this production are universal; we strive to touch people through the very real human values that are exhibited during any legitimate war.
