The program will feature a keynote presentation by a special guest speaker, Robin Greer, MA – U.S. Navy 2nd Class Petty Officer, music provided by the Acton Middle School Mixed Choir, and ceremonial elements honoring our nation’s veterans.
The committee has also been collaborating with schools in Hood County to develop an essay contest for students. The contest theme is “What Veterans Day Means to Me,” and contest winners will be announced at the ceremony on November 10.
Following this special recognition of our veterans, a parade will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 10 starting at the Granbury ISD Administration Building, running down Pearl St., and traveling around the Historic Granbury Square.
