FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CARBONDALE – The City of Carbondale’s annual Veterans Day Service will be similar to the virtual Memorial Day Service released earlier this year. Instead of an in-person ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Plaza, the City is producing a virtual ceremony honoring the men and women who have served or continue to serve our nation in the armed forces.
In viewing the video, viewers will see the Carbondale Police Department Honor Guard’s three-volley salute, the raising of the flag by Scouts BSA Troop 66B, and witness the decoration of graves at Snider Hill Cemetery by members and friends of the First Presbyterian Church of Carbondale.
The Virtual Veterans Day Service will be released Wednesday, November 11, at 10:00 a.m. on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The service will also air during the 6:30 p.m. newscast on WSIL-TV 3.
For more information, contact Public Relations Officer Roni LeForge at 618-559-1939.
