Veterans Day Celebration
Emmetsburg honors its veterans on the day set aside for such celebrations each year. This gives us an opportunity to stop and reflect on the service given to our country by our veterans. The Veterans include those who served in World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Each year the Veteran’s Day activities include speakers, readings related to veterans, a prayer, comments by our local Senator and Representative, music by the Catholic School chorus, and several other musical numbers.
The VFW Color Guard makes an appearance. The service ends with Taps being played, followed by refreshments and time for fellowship. Everyone is welcome to attend these activities.
