LANSING, Ill. (October 31, 2019) – This year’s Veterans Day Service at the Lansing Veterans Memorial will feature Lansing Trustee Maureen Grady-Perovich as the guest speaker. She will share information about Honor Flight—an opportunity for our nation’s veterans to spend a day in Washington DC, where they are treated as honored guests. Grady-Perovich will encourage veterans to apply for the free program and discuss the requirements for participation.

A performance of patriotic songs will be offered by the South Holland Master Chorale.

The traditional Veterans Day service is a meaningful recognition of those who have served or are now serving in our Armed Forces both in peacetime and in time of war. The Lansing Veterans Memorial Ceremonial Honor Guard hosts and leads the service.

The service will take place regardless of weather, moving into the Ford Hangar if necessary. Lawn chairs are suggested.

The Lansing Veterans Memorial is located at the southeast corner of Burnham and Glenwood-Lansing Road.
