Veteran’s Day

 

This year Active Aging, Inc., along with various sponsors, is holding their 19th annual Through A Veteran’s Eye: A Salute, to honor the men and women in uniform who have and will continue to protect our freedom.

Active Aging, Inc. invites you to join us on Saturday, November 10, 2018 for Through A Veteran’s Eye: A Salute.

We will begin the day at 0830 with a flag raising ceremony that will include the playing of For The Colors and a 21-gun salute. The Meadville Area High School Band will be providing music.

Following this ceremony we will be serving an Army style breakfast of scrambled eggs and creamed beef from a mess tent and during breakfast Quilts of Valor, whose mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts, will be presenting quilts to area veterans.

Next, Jack Greer Memorial Post 52 will hold the solemn Missing Man Ceremony in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military service members.

If you are unable to take part in this year’s event, you can watch it in your own home on the Armstrong Cable channel as well as through our website at activeaging.org.

A committee of local veterans and volunteers has put their time and dedication into producing this year’s Through A Veteran’s Eye: A Salute.  Without them and the donations from our sponsors, none of this would be possible. We would like to thank each committee member as well as Vantage, The Meadville Tribune, Linesville VFW Post 7842, KFC, and Lucy and John Nesbitt.
