LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Veterans Day at EOU will be commemorated with two events this year, one honoring those who have served and another highlighting a new resource for veteran students.
Members of the university and area community are invited to A Remembrance Ceremony at 10 a.m., Nov. 11 at the flagpole on University Blvd. between Pierce Library and Badgley Hall.
EOU President Bob Davies and Lt. Col. Richard McKim will make remarks and Jim Lundy will give the invocation. J. Michaels will sing the National Anthem, followed by raising the flag.
An open house at EOU’s recently established Veterans Resource Center also begins at 10 a.m. Situated in the daylight basement in Inlow Hall, Room 007, the center provides students with a quiet place to study, access to computers and other materials.
The open house continues until 2 p.m. All are invited to tour the new center, visit with veteran students and enjoy refreshments including donuts, coffee, pizza and soda.
