In commemoration of Veterans Day and Native American History Month, Raritan Valley Community College will host “Honoring Our Warriors: A Veterans Day Tribute,” Wednesday, November 11,
from 4-6:00 p.m. The event, which is free of charge and open to the public, will be held in the Nash Theatre at the College’s Branchburg Campus.
“Honoring Our Warriors: A Veterans Day Tribute” pays tribute to and welcomes home all of the men and women who have served this country. It is an opportunity to express gratitude for their
service and to honor those we have lost. Through dance, music and song, the performers will pay homage to our veterans—letting them know that the freedom they have provided us with is not being taken for granted.
The program moderated by Emelie Raven Standing Bear Jeffries will open with the presentation of the Eagle Staff and Colors including veterans in attendance. The RVCC Chorale Group under the direction of Professor Sichel will perform the National Anthem and an Armed Forces Medley.
Following the opening ceremony the Ravenswing Native American Dancers featuring world-renown Hoop Dancer, Amanda Ironstar and Youngblood Singers will honor our veterans through song and dance.
The event is being sponsored by RVCC’s Executive Offices and the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m. with special seating for veterans and their families.. For additional information about the performance, email firstname.lastname@example.org
