The High Point Public Library is hosting a Veterans Day Celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 28 from 10 a.m. to  2 p.m. and is billing it as “a tribute honoring veterans as well as their families.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 901 N. Main St. in High Point on the first floor of the Morgan Community Room.

It’s going to be much more than a celebration of America’s veterans: It will include refreshments, door prizes, and free health screenings and will also serve as an information session.

The celebration will include a Presenting of the Colors Ceremony by members of the High Point Central High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC.

During the event, entertainment will be provided by R. Keith O’Dell.

A representative from US Congresswoman Kathy Manning’s office will be there as well – as will be representatives from veteran’s organizations to discuss services available to veterans.

Among other activities that day, there will be free hearing health and blood pressure screenings, library tours by request, and a Triad Honor Flight representative who will discuss the Honor Flight trip to Washington DC next year.

The twice-a-year flights, which leave from Piedmont Triad International Airport, take those who served and sacrificed for the country to see the war memorials in the nation’s capital. The flight includes veterans from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War and the war in Vietnam.

The November 28  library event will also include food, door prizes and more.

To sign up to attend, those interested should contact Maxine Days at 336-883-3646 or email her at
