CDM Services

Symbol of Freedom Reception & Luncheon

Symbol of Freedom, presented by nonprofit organization CDM Services, is a two-day Veterans Day event designed to provide community members with the opportunity to recognize and honor local veterans. This year’s special guest speaker is Joe Torrillo, a retired Lieutenant with the NYC Fire Department and survivor of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

The public is invited to attend an intimate community gathering with Torillo at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Artillery Barracks at 600 Hatheway Road on the Fort Vancouver National Site. This event allows attendees the chance to meet Torrillo and get a photo or autograph. On the following day, Nov. 3, everyone is invited to attend a luncheon beginning at 11:30 a.m. on the Hilton Vancouver featuring a keynote presentation by Torrillo. He’ll speak about the obstacles he overcame while fighting to survive a horrific, life-changing tragedy, and his life—and the nation’s utterly altered life—thereafter. Seating begins at 11 a.m.

Tickets—available on the CDM website—to the VIP reception on Nov. 2 are $100 per person and $50 per person for the luncheon on Nov. 3. Symbol of Freedom, in addition to honoring our veterans, is also designed to increase awareness of CDM Caregiving Services, which provides care to elderly and disabled clients in their own homes.
