Thursday November 11th, the CVMD will be hosting events to celebrate and honor our veterans in Clovis and across the country. Chairman of the Board for the CVMD Tim Wright talked about how Clovis shows appreciation for those who served.
“Clovis has a long tradition of honoring and taking care of our Veterans,” Wright said. “Our goal is to both salute those who have served, and to inspire others to join in this important part of our community culture.”
The events will take place throughout the day and are free and open to the public. The events in the morning will help transition to a patriotic concert where Military traditions will be shown to honor the World War One Armistice that took place on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Tim Wright also talked about how people can expect these events to be fun for everyone who comes to the events by saying “Our Veterans Day events offer a blend of fun and formal activities that place our Veterans’ service in perspective and focus on the importance of the values they represent.”
