Veterans Day Ceremony
November 11 @ 14:00 - 15:00Free
The Rotary Club of Kalamazoo-Sunrise would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Veterans Day ceremony which will be held at Rose Park Veterans Memorial on Monday, November 11, 2019 starting at 2:00 PM.
The main theme of this year’s program is the renaming of that memorial which will be dedicated at our ceremony. The new name will be: Robert L. Cook Veterans Memorial Plaza at Rose Park.
A remembrance of Bob Cook’s role in conceiving, building, and maintaining Rose Park will be a major part of the ceremony. I anticipate that we will have speakers from the Kalamazoo Sunrise Rotary Club, the Kalamazoo Detachment of the Marine Corps League, and (most likely) the City of Kalamazoo in the program. I also foresee the possibility of including two songs that are closely associated with Bob’s social activism: The Marines Hymn and Smile.
