The Santa Clarita City Council invites community members to come together for a virtual Veterans Day Ceremony to honor local veterans, currently-serving military members and their families at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Due to public health restrictions on gatherings, this year’s Veterans Day ceremony will feature a pre-recorded speaking and music program that can be viewed on the city of Santa Clarita’s Facebook page, as well as on SCVTV platforms including scvtv.com, Facebook and cable channels (Spectrum Channel 20 or AT&T Channel 99).
The ceremony will include a flyover by the Coast Guard, as well as a moment of silence for veterans who have passed away and service members killed in action, a roster of speakers and patriotic performances. There will also be a changing of the flags by the Knights of Columbus Santa Clarita Assembly and Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 355.
With the move to an online format this year, the City is also requesting photos of veterans and currently serving military members to be included in a photo montage as part of the ceremony. Photos must be submitted by Monday, Oct. 19 in order to be included. To submit a photo, please visit santa-clarita.com/VeteranPhoto.
