The City of Henderson is proud to honor those who have served our nation in the armed forces at its annual Veterans Day Ceremony starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, in Downtown Henderson at the Henderson Events Plaza Amphitheatre, 200 S. Water St.
Mayor Debra March and members of the City Council, joined by the Basic High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC and local veterans groups, will honor those who have fought for the United States of America.
“On Veterans Day, we honor all those Americans who have demonstrated their patriotism and commitment to the values our country stands for through their brave and selfless military service,” said Mayor March. “It is our responsibility to forever remember the achievements of the men and women who defended our freedoms and to show our gratitude for the many sacrifices they have made while answering the call to duty.”
The program will include the singing of the National Anthem, a keynote address by Councilman and military veteran Dan Shaw, presentation of colors, and the reading of local veterans’ names that will be added to the Henderson Veterans Memorial Wall. The Henderson Symphony Orchestra will perform a special musical tribute to the armed forces.
Dedicated in 1994, the Veterans Memorial Wall honors Henderson veterans who have served their country. The wall honors various generations of service men and women whose names adorn the memorial’s panels.
