Impressed with Brock Elliott Day ceremony

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

Friday morning I had the honor to attend my first “Brock Elliott Day” at Brock Elliott Elementary School.  As I entered the quad where the ceremony was to take place, I was moved by what I saw.  Students, faculty, parents, and veterans were all there, united to commemorate those who gave their lives in Vietnam.  

From the Manteca High Junior ROTC presenting the colors to begin the ceremony and the kindergarten classes leading the Pledge of Allegiance to the choir and band’s patriotic songs and the student council reciting the names of those we were there to remember, I was overwhelmed with a sense of patriotism and a love for my country.  Though we may disagree on the conflict and the reasons behind it, we can agree that those who have fought and died deserve to be remembered and honored in such a way as Brock Elliott did Friday morning.  I am proud to be an American and I want to thank those veterans who are still living today.  You make our country great and we are indebted to you. God bless America!

Frank Guinta
enriches Manteca

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

The Manteca Artist Guild would like to thank Frank Guinta for once again allowing us to hold our annual Art Show in Chez Shari.  For eight years Mr. Guinta has opened the doors of this beautiful facility to us and shown his continued support for fine arts in Manteca.

We also want to thank the staff of Chez Shari. They have always been friendly, helpful and courteous to participating artists, as well as visitors to the show.

It is our belief that events like this enrich the community as a whole and Mr. Guinta has helped make it happen.
