The city of Henderson on Saturday will honor those who have served in the U.S. armed forces at its annual Veterans Day Ceremony.
“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,” Henderson Mayor Debra March said in a news release last month.
The ceremony is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at the Henderson Events Plaza Amphitheatre, 200 S. Water St.
March will be joined by members of the City Council, the Basic High School Junior ROTC and local veterans groups.
The program will feature the national anthem, a tribute to the armed forces by the Henderson Symphony Orchestra, a keynote address by veteran and Councilman Dan Shaw and the presentation of colors, the release said.
The names of local veterans will be read aloud and later added to the city’s Veterans Memorial Wall, which was dedicated in 1994.
