Handshakes, hugs and honor

Barbara Lawlor, Gilpin County. Bridging the generation gap. Gilpin County Cub Scout Isaac Murphy, 8, shakes the hands of veterans who gathered at the Gilpin County Veteran’s Memorial at the GC Recreation Center on Saturday morning.


Traditional moment. Cub Scouts were asked to stand with the veterans during the 21-gun salute, honoring the veterans past and present in the traditional acknowledgement of those who have served.
