[ARCHIVED] Celebrate Veterans Day in Lilburn

Celebrate our nation's veterans with a recognition ceremony and ice cream social in Lilburn City Park on Sunday, Nov. 10. There will be a display of patriotic quilts at the event that will be donated to members of the military.

The program presented by City of Lilburn and VFW Post 12096 will begin at 2 p.m. Major Ron Tootle of the Parkview Marine Corps Jr. ROTC will serve as the keynote speaker, and the Gwinnett Community Band will provide music. Ice cream will be served following the celebration.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their worn, tattered, and damaged American flags to the event for proper retirement. Lilburn VFW Post 12096 will provide this service free of charge.

Quilts of Valor Foundation will be onsite displaying some of the beautiful quilts the group has created for members of the military. The public will have the opportunity to participate in the group’s annual quilt raffle and sign cards for members of the military. Quilts of Valor Foundation will also accept 100 percent cotton, patriotic-colored fabric donations at the event.
