It was a very special morning yesterday at Mt. Vernon HCC.

Resident Arthur Capps never received medals for his service in World War II. Yesterday at MVHCC, thanks largely to Carrell’s efforts on Art’s behalf, U.S. Rep. John Shimkus presented Art with the long overdue medals.

Carrell and the Staff had the home sparkling, and Rep. Shimkus, along with the Mayor of Mt. Vernon even stayed for punch and cake.

A “Great job” goes out to Carrell and her team!

Three newspapers were on hand to cover the event. Here are links to online versions of two of the articles…
