Kaufman County invites you to celebrate Veterans Day with the official lighting of the Vietnam Memorial Wall at the Veterans Memorial Park at 4:30 p.m. until dusk on November 11, 2021. Traditionally, Veterans Day ceremonies are held during the 11 a.m. hour, but this year, as the sun goes down, we will light up the wall that depicts the names of so many veteran heroes. There will also be an unveiling of a monumental POW/MIA chair, an array of dignified speakers, the announcement of the high school essay contest winners, a food truck, and comradery. We encourage everyone to come out early between 2:30 and 3 p.m. to join in on Doe Belly’s food truck network with each other, and enjoy the park. The official ceremony will begin at 430 p.m.
The Kaufman County Veterans Memorial Park is located at 3960 S. Houston St. in Kaufman and parking will be available at the Kaufman County Library at 3970 S. Houston Street, the County Appraisal District office at 3950 S. Houston Street, or at Norman Junior High School across the street from the Memorial Park.
