Join us for the 14th annual Veterans Day & Flag Raising Program set for Friday, November 11, at 7:30 a.m., at the Regional Veterans Park on the campus of Lane Regional Medical Center, 6300 Main Street in Zachary.

The annual Flag Raising is sponsored by the Bank of Zachary. “Every year we look forward to sponsoring this wonderful community event to honor the service and sacrifice of our local veterans,” says Bank of Zachary President/CEO Mark Marionneaux. “We invite everyone to join us as we honor the service and sacrifice of our local veterans.”

Vince Giaccone, Chairman of the Regional Veteran’s Park Association Board, will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Retired Army veteran and former Pentagon employee Lieutenant colonel Rafael Morrison will offer remarks during the program. Cadets from the Army Junior ROTC at Zachary High will provide the flag detail under the direction of Lieutenant Colonel Spears along with local Boy Scout Troop 46 and Cub Scout Pack 46. Patriotic music will be provided by the school’s band and choir under band director Jason Venable and choir director Cierra Fountain.
