Events:  Veterans Day Observance


The Norris Lions Club celebrates Veterans Day every year, with a breakfast gathering at a local establishment and a ceremony honoring our Norris friends and neighbors for their military service -- veterans whose services date as far back as 1942 and all those who have served since.  Activities typically begin at 10:00 a.m. on 11th with socializing among the veterans and with the Norris community.  This last year, the program proceded as folloows:
