Highlands Ranch celebration to honor veterans

Organizations to take part in tribute to those who have served in armed forces


Residents will honor those who have served in the U.S. armed forces at the annual Highlands Ranch Veterans Day Celebration. The celebration begins at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 11 inside the James H. LaRue Library, which sits adjacent to the Highlands Ranch Veterans Monument.

Natalie Tysdal, anchor of "Daybreak" on Channel 2, will serve as master of ceremonies, and Sgt. First Class Harold Waterman will deliver the keynote address. The Highlands Ranch Veterans Day Celebration also features Highlands Ranch American Legion Post 1260, the Knights of Columbus Pax Christi Assembly 3353, and the Highlands Ranch Concert Band.

Local Scout Troop 873 will greet guests as they arrive and scout Jay Powell will lead the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. Headliner Vocals' Diamond Group and Silver Group will sing a national anthem medley, accompanied by Jeevee Balangan on keyboard.

Guests are encouraged to arrive early and visit the Highlands Ranch Veterans Monument, outside of the library, prior to the event. A focal point of the monument is a special tribute memorial to three hometown heroes whose names are etched in stone: Staff Sgt. Christopher Falkel, Sgt. Jon Stiles and Cpl. Max Donahue.

The James H. LaRue Library is at 9292 S. Ridgeline Blvd., Highlands Ranch.

The Highlands Ranch Veterans Day Celebration is sponsored by Kneaders of Highlands Ranch. For more information about the event, call 303-791-0430. Learn more about the monument at www.hrvets.org.
