A special SALUTE TO VETERANS will be celebrated at the BIG Event – Pirates on the Promenade on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 4:30 PM, at the Frances Langford Promenade at Lake Mirror Amphitheatre. The SALUTE TO VETERANS is underwritten by Green Construction and is a community project involving civic groups – the North Lakeland Rotary Club, the Lakeland Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the City of Lakeland. The program will begin with a march performed by the Lakeland Concert Band led by Mr. Vic Larsen, and includes presentation of the colors by the Girl Scout Troop #70698, and special recognition of veterans of all conflicts, but especially the Vietnam War, as we continue to commemorate the 50th anniversary. Commissioner Don Selvage will be our master of ceremonies. The program will end with a reading of The Wall, and the Armed Forces Medley performed by the Lakeland Concert Band with special singing guest Rebecca Renfroe-Borneman.
