Veterans Day 2012

In honor of the many veterans that live in our community as well as the 50th Anniversary of the city, there will be several special activities planned for the upcoming Veterans Day weekend.

Beginning on Saturday, November 9, the Military Debt Management Agency will be hosting its First Annual Veterans Day Charity Golf Tournament. Shotgun starts at 1 p.m. at The Country Club of Coral Springs. Cost is $150 per person or $500 per foursome. Fees also include a cookout luncheon and an Italian buffet dinner. Proceeds will benefit Operation Homefront, which provides emergency financial assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

On Monday, November 11, bring your family, friends and neighbors, and join us for the City’s annual Veterans Day Ceremony at Veterans Park at 10:30 a.m. Wear your patriotic colors and support those who served our country. The ceremony will include speeches by veterans and politicians, a 21-gun salute, placing of a wreath and raising of the military and United States flags. The park is located at 8601 Royal Palm Blvd., just east of University Drive.

Later that evening, there will be a memorable Veterans Salute at The Country Club of Coral Springs. Starting at 6 p.m., there will be a free “evening under the stars” for a program and featured performances by Susan Ashley and the J.P. Taravella Band. This will be an unforgettable night in honor of those brave men and women who have fought for our country.
