The City of Santa Clarita invites residents to honor our country’s veterans and military at the annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at the Veterans Historical Plaza, located at 24275 N. Walnut Street. The ceremony will take place rain or shine.

“It’s important that all generations understand the true meaning of Veterans Day and the enormous sacrifices veterans have made to secure and defend the freedoms of the United States of America,” commented Mayor Frank Ferry. “Honoring our veterans is an important event within our community and we are proud to partner with other local organizations to honor and support the courageous men and women who have vowed to protect and serve our country,”

The Santa Clarita Veterans Day Ceremony will feature musical performers, speakers, and a changing of the flags. The ceremony will begin with a reading by J.D. Kennedy as a sign of respect for those who are missing in action (MIA) or prisoners of war (POW). Following the reading, the ceremony will continue with the changing of the flags by the Knights of Columbus Santa Clarita Assembly and representatives from various armed services recruiting offices.

Featured local speakers include the Santa Clarita City Council, Retired Master Sgt. Eldonna Lewis Fernandez, Rabbi Blazer and Navy Veteran Duane Harte, who will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. The event will also feature patriotic performances by local singer Gayle LaRone, Heather Kate Duncan, Valencia High School Junior ROTC, and 4 of Hart’s.
