On Saturday, May 27 members of the Hauppauge Fire Department led by Chief Ron Walker, honored the veterans living at the Arbors Senior Home in Islandia. The Department, with the assistance of Donato Panico of Panico's Community Market in Smithtown brought brunch for the vets, along with pumpers and the ladder truck. It was a beautiful day and a great way to salute our veterans. Among the members of the department attending were many of our veterans including 91 year old Ed Smith. Photos by Greg Gottlieb.
