Salt Lake City — Salt Lake County will be hosting the 14th Annual Veteran’s Day Celebration on Friday, Nov 9 at 11:15 AM to honor more than 450 county employees and family members who have served in the military. The ceremony will be held in the County Council Chambers at 2100 South and State Street.
Salt Lake County Deputy Mayor Nichole Dunn will kick off the event with a speech to honor all veterans, after which the East High Army ROTC will present the Flag Raising Ceremony and guide the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance. West High School Choir will sing a number of patriotic songs, including leading the audience in each of the service hymns.
“This celebration is a visual reminder of the sacrifice and dedication not only of our own county employees, but also their family members and veterans throughout this great nation we are proud to represent,” said Youth Services Associate Director Roger Gisseman, a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Gisseman has spearheaded the celebration since it began in 1998.
Weather permitting, representatives from the various military services will participate in a retirement of the service flags that are on display at the 9/11 Memorial located in the government center plaza outside.
