Carefree to hold annual Salute to Veterans


CAREFREE – The Town of Carefree will once again honor veterans with a presentation and musical tribute on Veterans Day. The ceremony runs 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 11 and will be located at the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion in the Carefree Desert Gardens.

This event will feature several special guest speakers, including veterans of the armed forces, with special guest World War II Veteran Lew Jenkins. The musical tribute will begin with a bagpipe rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’, with multiple other patriotic renditions by Todd Knowles and his Main Event Swing Band. The finale will once again include the bugle call, The Last Post, followed by TAPS.

This is the ninth annual event. The community is invited to attend and support local veterans.
