As you may have heard, we have rearranged many events this year due to COVID. One of those events, near and dear to all our hearts, is our annual Veterans Day celebration at the Charters of Freedom monument. Needless to say, a gathering that large is impossible at this time. Instead, we contracted with Harris Media to create a Salute to Veterans video we hope you will enjoy with your friends and family everywhere for years to come. Rather than bring in one special speaker, we brought our very own City employees who also happen to be Veterans. And one very important community volunteer.
We hope you will enjoy this video which includes Mayor Eric Haas, Navy Captain Jerry Blesch, Edward Goode, Pastor of Christ Church of Fort Thomas, Army Specialist Jack Perkins, Air Force Captain Sean Donelan, Marine Corporal Will Martin, Army Sgt. Eric Scherpenberg, and Army Sgt. Major Lonnie Slone and Army Staff Sgt. Greg Mounce. Also participating is Boy Scout Troop 437 and their leader, Michelle Hathorn, the Brotherhood Singers of Northern Kentucky, and Bugler, Eric Steiden.
The video goes live beginning at 7:15 am on Wednesday, November 11, 2020. The web address is: https://youtu.be/KWqrDAIF8Vg
