Glendale Chamber hosts Veterans Day Ceremony Nov. 11

Posted

The Glendale Chamber of Commerce’s Military & Veterans Affairs Committee in partnership with Mayor Jerry Weiers and the City of Glendale invites residents to a Veterans Day Ceremony Monday, Nov. 11.

The ceremony will consist of a brief program in the Glendale Main Library Auditorium, 5959 W. Brown St., followed by a flag-raising ceremony performed by the Marine Corps League Old Breed Detachment at the copper tree memorial outside the library.

The event will also be the unveiling of the Glendale Chamber’s Flag Retirement Program. Glendale Chamber member Wayne Cole has created an incinerator to properly retire old, torn flags. The flag ashes will then be placed in a special memorial at Rest Haven Dignity Memorial Cemetery.

The public is encouraged to bring their old flags for retirement and a new flag to help the Glendale Chamber Military & Veteran’s Affairs Committee keep the flag on top of Arrowhead Point at Thunderbird Conservation Park in great condition.
