LANSING, MI – Veterans Day Tributes will be virtual events this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19. You are encouraged to learn more about your area and how they will be celebrating those veterans who have protected our nation.
Mayor Andy Schor announced that the City of Lansing’s annual Veterans Day Tribute will be a virtual event to premiere on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, on City TV (Comcast Channel 12), the City’s YouTube page and the City’s Facebook page at 6:00 p.m.
“Veterans Day is an important day where we recognize and thank those that have served our country. The Mayor’s Veterans Commission has been hard at work to ensure that we still have our annual Veterans Day Tribute despite the challenges of having large, in-person events presented by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Andy Schor.
“Our annual tribute will be virtual this year, allowing us to come together as a community and thank our Veterans who have selflessly served us to keep Lansing, Michigan, and the United States safe and free. I invite everyone to join me in watching the premiere showing on Wednesday, November 11, at 6:00 p.m.”
