State Rep. Joe Hohenstein held a veterans appreciation barbecue on Sunday at Bridesburg Recreation Center.

City Councilmen David Oh and Mike Driscoll were also on hand. Joe Coyne, of Evryman Jack, entertained the crowd and performed the national anthem, with the colors presented by William D. Oxley American Legion Post 133 and Frankford High School Jr. ROTC.

Vendors offered services for veterans, along with information on state and local programs benefiting veterans and their families. Hohenstein asked the crowd to observe a moment of silence for Bill Volz, a former Simpson Athletic Association soccer coach and Bridesburg American Legion Post 821 commander who passed away on July 11. ••
