The opportunity to fully gather and celebrate Veterans Day throughout Door County will return this week after a three-year absence due to the pandemic. The Door County Veterans Office has helped organize three different events over the next few days that will honor all who have served in the military and current armed forces members. This Thursday, the Peninsula Symphonic Band will perform at the Prince of Peace Church at 7 pm with AMVETS Post 51 posting and retiring the colors. On Friday, the ADRC in Sturgeon Bay will host a Veterans Day program at 11 am that will include a speech by Door County Assistant Veterans Benefits Specialist Robert Walsh (Ret. USCG) along with a Rifle Salute by the AMVETS and patriotic music by Ken Pollock. Door County Veterans Service Officer Beth Van Oss will be the guest speaker at the Veterans Day celebration at Gibraltar High School at 10 am on Friday, with the Gibraltar High School Band performing. She shares her anticipated message for the students, community, and veterans in attendance.
The public is welcome to attend all three Door County Veterans Day events and can contact the Door County Veterans Office for additional information.
