Ohio Northern University to honor veterans
Help us recognize veterans this week. Tweet your thoughts and thanks to celebrate Veteran's Day using the hashtag #thankaveteran and @ohionorthern.
Ohio Northern University will celebrate the contributions of American service members with a number of activities beginning Nov. 5 and leading up to Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Yellow ribbons in remembrance of those who served will be distributed throughout the week.
Nov. 5: Army National Guard display on the Tundra (behind English Chapel) from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m
Nov. 6: Army National Guard display on the Tundra (behind English Chapel) from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m
Nov. 7: Military-appreciation table in McIntosh Center. ONU community members are invited to sign cards, which then will be sent to active-duty military personnel. All day.
Nov. 8: Special prayer for veterans during the Chapel hour at 11 a.m.
Nov. 9: A wreath-laying ceremony will highlight the week of activities at the flagpole in front of Lehr Memorial at noon. The event is open to the public.
Groups supporting the week include members of the Ohio Northern Veterans Organization, as well as members of ONU admissions, academic departments and staff members. This marks the fourth year that ONU has set aside time to reflect on and honor America’s men and women in uniform, and the observances are designed to raise awareness in the ONU community.
