The City of Collegedale invites the public to their Veterans Day Program honoring all members of the nation’s military on Monday. Held at the Veterans Memorial Park on Apison Pike, the ceremony will begin at 3 p.m.
U.S. Congressman Chuck Fleischman will be the keynote speaker, accompanied by guest speakers Representative Mike Carter and Collegedale Mayor Katie Lamb. Members of the Collegedale Academy Band will perform under the direction of Gregory Lindquist.
“I am truly honored that Dr. Phil Garver and the local VFW officials asked me to direct and emcee the annual Veterans Day Ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Park of Collegedale,” said Mathew Miller, director of public relations with the VMP board of directors. “It is important that we take the time to properly honor all of our Veterans, both past and present. Without their sacrifices, we would not have the freedoms that we all have been afforded by our founding fathers and those brave military Veterans that protect our nation as a whole.”
In the event of bad weather, the service will be moved to the Collegedale Commons on Swinyar Drive. For more information, contact Mathew Miller at 423-580-4999.
