On Wednesday, Nov. 11, the Town of Niagara Lions and Lioness Clubs are proud to again honor this nation's veterans with a very special ceremony at the newly constructed memorial in Veterans Memorial Community Park, 7000 Lockport Road.
The ceremony will commence promptly at 11 a.m. Town Supervisor Lee Wallace will welcome everyone with opening remarks. Boy Scout Troop 841 will be the Color Guard. Town resident Nick Cofield will perform the Star Spangled Banner and taps with his trumpet. There will also be wreath presentations by the Lions and Lioness. The Rev. Ron Maines of the Forestview Church of God will offer opening and closing prayers. The guest speaker is Dr. Kristin Jacobsen, founder of the veterans recognition organization Hands Healing Heroes. All veterans attending the ceremony will receive a unique veterans pin.
The Lions will also be collecting American flags that are in disrepair for proper disposal.
Due to the continuing pandemic, attendees are requested to wear a face covering and practice social distancing. Cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
Everyone is invited to join in honoring these veterans. For further information, contact Chairperson Lion Angelo Onevelo at 716-628-0244.
