Veterans Day Celebration


CUAA’s 7th Annual Veterans Day Celebration
Nov. 11th 2014

Festivities will take place from 9am to 5pm.

We invite you to join us for Concordia University’s seventh annual Veterans Day celebration! On this day, we pause to pay tribute to the members of our armed forces who have fought to preserve our nation and our freedom.

As a means of honoring those who have served, Concordia University Ann Arbor is offering the opportunity to make a tax deductible donation starting at $20 to sponsor an Honorary Veterans Star for veterans or military members currently serving our great nation.

Honorary Veterans Stars will be displayed on the Manor Lawn of the university and the names of those honored will be read as part of the celebration.
