Posted Oct 18, 2020 12:05 PM

Salina Area Technical College and the Kansas National Guard’s Regional Training Institute are hosting a Veteran’s Day event.

The flag-raising ceremony followed by breakfast is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 11 on the Salina Tech campus.

Veterans and active-duty members of the military and their families are welcome at the event.

A color guard from the Regional Training Institute will raise the flag in front of Salina Tech’s Building A, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance, singing of the National Anthem and firing a ceremonial cannon.

This will be the fifth year Salina Tech and the National Guard have hosted such an event, with some changes this year because of the Covid pandemic.

While the outside ceremony is open to anyone, reservations for the breakfast MUST be made by Nov. 4, and reservations will be on a first-come, first serve basis. People with reservations will have to sign a waiver to be admitted, and will also have to be masked and have their temperature checked when entering the building.

To make a reservation, contact [email protected], or call Alisha Jester at 785-309-3107.
