Mark your calendars now for two special events honoring our veterans … the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend both.
- Friday, Nov. 10: South Milwaukee High School will host its annual Veterans Day program on Friday, November 10, 2017 in the high school fieldhouse at 1:30 p.m. Local veterans who would like to attend are asked to provide brief biographical information to the Veterans Day planning committee (please contact George A. Cleveland in the high school counseling office at firstname.lastname@example.org) so they can be recognized during the program. Guests and families should arrive between 12:30 and 1 p.m. and proceed to the high school library for a brief welcoming reception before the veterans processional into the fieldhouse. The program lasts until approximately 3 p.m. and will be followed by a reception in the library. Members of the community will need to check-in/register at the front office.
- Saturday, Nov. 11: The annual event led by the Veterans’ Council includes a march starting at 10:30 a.m. from American Legion Post 27 Van Eimeren-Kolonka at 920 Monroe Ave. to the Veterans Memorial on 10th Avenue South of Rawson, a brief ceremony at the memorial, and lunch back at the post.
Please consider attending one or both of these terrific events, and celebrate those who fought and fight our freedom.
