With all the focus on November 8th, you may have forgotten that there is another significant date next week – November 11th. (You know, the day honoring the people who risked their lives and sacrificed their personal comfort so we could all be free to complain about this election!)
Southborough will again hold its traditional Veteran’s Day parade and ceremony. But this year, honors for some veterans will begin a day early.
For the second year, the Southborough Rotary Club is inviting the public to join them in celebrating those who have served our country. This time the event will take place on the eve of Veteran’s Day, Thursday, November 10, at 7:00 pm.
The evening will highlight and honor three Southborough veterans who didn’t speak at last year’s event:
These local veterans will speak about their experiences and about what service has meant to them throughout their lives. Come listen to their stories and to ask questions.
- Steve Whynot
- Daniel Kolenda
- Chris Robbins
The event is in keeping with the club’s pledge “Celebrating Service, Celebrating Southborough”. Last year, the Rotary explained:
The intent of this gathering is to allow the members of our community who have served in our military to express how their service to our nation has influenced their lives, the lives of their families and the community.
The event will be held at St. Mark’s School in Taft Hall. For more information about the event or where to park on St. Mark’s campus, please call the St. Mark’s Front Desk at 508 786-6000.
