Veterans Day

La Plume – Keystone College will conduct its eighth annual Veterans Day Program on Tuesday, Nov. 13 on campus.

Ceremonies will begin at 11:45 a.m. as members of the Keystone community dedicate the college’s new Veterans Garden in front of Harris Hall. The black granite memorial features the logos of the Unites States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard as well as the symbol of soldiers who have served as prisoners of war or are missing in action. Funds for the memorial were raised by members of the Keystone College Armed Forces Club and other members of the Keystone community.  

Following the dedication, the annual Veterans Day luncheon for members of the college community and honored guests will begin at 12:15 p.m. in the Theatre in Brooks. Keystone speaker for the event will be Rev. Douglas Shepler, senior pastor of the Second Reformed Church of New Brunswick, N.J. Rev. Shepler is also chaplain of RISN House, a student hospitality center at Rutgers University.

Keystone’s Veterans Day ceremonies are held each year to honor those who have served and who currently serve in our nation’s armed forces and those who have given their lives in service of their country.
