BONHAM, TX -- Hundreds of people honored our veterans and senior citizens Saturday night in Fannin County.

The 15th Armed Forces Day event wrapped up late Saturday night at the Multi-Purpose Complex in Bonham.

Congressman Ralph Hall and former astronaut Gene Cernan, who was the last man to leave his footprints on the moon, were in attendance.

At the dinner, veterans were recognized and two Patriot Scholarship winners were awarded checks.

"We also recognize our seniors because so many of our senior citizens, they give so much to the community," says President of Fannin County Republican Women, Melanie Grammar.

The event was sponsored by the Fannin County Republican Party.
