The annual La Vergne Veterans Day Ceremony returns Saturday, November 11th at 11 a.m. at Veterans Memorial Park (located at 115 Floyd Mayfield Drive). This year’s speakers include Tabatha Howard, Ross Howard and Randy Berg. There will also be a 21 gun salute and taps will be played.
The parks department is also offering two ways for families and friends to honor their loved ones who have served in the armed forces.
La Vergne Veterans Day Freedom Field Flags
The parks department will be offering commemorative 3’ x 5’ American flag attached to a 6 ft. pole that can be purchased for $10. The flags will be on display in our Freedom Field and will also be marked with the honored veteran’s information. Click here for the online Freedom Field Flags form.
Veterans Memorial Wall Bricks
The City of La Vergne also still has space on its memorial wall to honor family, friends, neighbors and colleagues who have served in the U.S. armed forces. The wall is a permanent commemorative display that is lined with bricks engraved with the names of honored men and women who have served our great country. The cost of a brick is $35 and you may select up to 4 lines, with 21 characters per line (including spaces and symbols). Visit the Buy a Brick page to fill out the online form or download a form that can be dropped off at La Vergne Parks and Recreation.
