Veterans Day Ceremony And Barbecue
On Monday, Nov. 11 at 11:30 a.m., campus will honor Lynn’s veterans with the Veterans Day ceremony in Christine’s Park followed immediately by the Red, White and Blue Barbecue in the Bobby Campbell Dining Commons.
Veterans Day falls on the anniversary of the end of World War I and thanks U.S. veterans and current members of the armed forces for their service. Each year, campus celebrates the veterans in the Lynn community with a ceremony featuring honorary remarks from President Kevin M. Ross. President Ross individually recognizes Lynn’s servicemen and women during this address.
In previous years, the ceremony also gifted each recognized veteran with a white rose dipped in blue paint. Order of the Grail Knights (OGK), Lynn’s secret society, creates the white and blue roses and gives them to members of the community who embody Lynn’s core principles: spirit, service and strength.
