Veteran’s Day

Every three years, Active Aging, Inc. expands on its annual Veterans day event, Through a Veteran’s Eye: A Salute, to a three day event that encompasses a variety of speakers, displays and presentations. This year’s event, focusing the topic to On the Homefront: Through A Civilian’s Eye, will take place on Thursday, November 10th through Saturday, November 12th. All activities will be held at the Community Center of Crawford County located at 1034 Park Avenue in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

This three day event will be filled with historical knowledge and entertainment. Museum quality displays and demonstrations will also be open to the public throughout the event. Start each day with a flag raising ceremony led by VFW U.S. Post 2006 and Post 52 of Meadville. Then continue into the day listening to the presentations of the speaker series as well as a variety of demonstrations. Speakers from across the Northwestern Pennsylvania area and afar will be presenting topics relating to life here on the homefront during times of war and conflict. Friday night, festivities will continue at the USO Dance, beginning at 7:30PM.
