Community Notebook: Veterans to be honored at Palo Alto event

 

Palo Alto Mayor Karen Holman will be the host at a special event honoring veterans and those in active service next week.

The ceremony, which will be held on Monday, Nov. 9, at 4 p.m. on King Plaza at City Hall, aims to bring attention to the transition military service members go through to return to civilian life as well as recognize city employees who have served in the armed forces and honor veterans in the community.

"In the spirit of community, please join us in saluting all the men and women who have served our country and the families who support them," an announcement reads.

For more information about the event, visit cityofpaloalto.org/veterans or contact Janice Svendsen at janice.svendsen@cityofpaloalto.org or 650-329-2105.
