Saturday, November 9th,  there will be the annual parade at 9:30 a.m. and the Erie VA Medical Center staff is asking that folks line the streets to show support for the veterans of Erie and surrounding areas. American Flags will be handed out to those who come to show support, so you can wave them as veterans make their way down the street in the parade. The parade begins at the Veterans Stadium and kick off on the corner of 26th and State Streets and marches South on State, ending at the Erie VA Medical Center.
Following the parade, there will be a ceremony at 11 a.m. at the Naval Reserve Center located behind the VA, and the community is invited to attend and pay tribute to veterans.

Monday, the Vet Center is teaming up with the Erie Otters for a special Veteran’s Day Game at 2 p.m. with discounted tickets for veterans. There will be activities throughout the game, as well as a booth set up with counseling information for combat veterans.

On Tuesday, November 12th from 7 – 8:30 p.m., there will be a symposium dedicated to honoring women who have served in the military. Local female veterans will share their stories, and the public is encouraged to attend. The event will be in the second floor conference room at the Erie VA Medical Center.
