Veteran's Day isn't until Monday, but SWIRCA in Evansville is hosting a celebration on Friday. A Veteran's Day luncheon will be held from 9a.m, to 1p.m. at the SWIRCA Activity Center. In addition to food, guest speakers, presentation of colors and the remeberance of our nation's Prisoner's of War are all on the schedule.
Also in Evansville, the American Red Cross will be sending bags of goodies to our local veterans.
The Totes For Hope program fills bags with personal items such as winter clothes, books, and other essentials for men and women returning home from service. All of the items have been donated by the community.
After final touches, the Red Cross is delivering the totes to the V.A. Clinic.
Several EVSC schools also have assemblies planned to honor local veterans throughout the day.
