Canisius College will host a series of events today (Monday, November 11) to remember and honor all who have served in our nation’s Armed Forces. All Canisius faculty and staff are encouraged to set aside a few minutes of time today to participate or discuss the topic in your classes.
The following events are scheduled:
- 12:00 p.m. Official Veterans Day Observation with wreath laying (Greatest Generation Memorial in front of Old Main)
- 12:30 p.m. Remembrance Ceremony: Roll Call reading honoring Western New York’s fallen Heroes.
- 7:00 p.m. Men’s Basketball tips off the 2013-2014 season. Veterans and members of our armed forces will receive a free ticket. A pre-game ceremony will recognize our veterans.
All all faculty and staff who are Veterans are encouraged to proudly wear their medals or ribbons. Veterans Day is one of the few days where veterans are encouraged to wear their ribbons or medals. Each and every one of you are encouraged to dust off that old ribbon set or medals and wear them proudly on Monday the 11. Show the campus that you served. Be visible.
Yellow Ribbons will be available at all of the Veterans Day Events.
