Sedona Korean-American Association Hosts Appreciation Lunch for Korean War Veterans and their Families

In special recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Korean War

SEDONA– The year 2010 marks the 60th anniversary of the Korean War.  In the past 60 years, generations have been born and have grown-up, and time has distanced our collective memories from the days of that war.

To the Americans who served, however, and to the Koreans who saw their country ravaged by war before it emerged as a modern leading financial success, sixty years has not erased their memory.  For this reason, the Sedona Korean-American Association would like to gather together the Korean War Veterans from Northern Arizona this Veterans Day to share memories and show its appreciation for the sacrifices they made in a foreign land for a foreign people.

The event will include a short statement from Banya Lim, Sedona business manager and President of the Korean-American Association, a luncheon, and an open mike for anyone to express their gratitude or share memories of their time in service.  Participants will include members of the Sedona Korean-American community, veterans, and their families.

The staff of the hosting venue, the Mago Healing Center at 340 Jordan Road, will offer free shoulder healing massages to the veterans in honor of Veteran’s Day.

The event will take place on November 12th, from 11am-2pm, at 340 Jordan Road in Sedona, AZ.  An RSVP ahead of time is appreciated due to limited space.   Veterans can RSVP to Banya Lim, 928-567-7897 or 928-274-2957.
