Each November, Cabarrus comes together to remember and honor the service and sacrifice of all veterans.
This year is no different, as the Veterans Day Celebration returns as an in-person event for the first time since the emergence of COVID-19. Cabarrus County’s Veterans Services Department is collaborating with the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County and the City of Concord on November 11 at 11 a.m. at the Boys & Girls Club (247 Spring Street, Concord).
All Cabarrus veterans are invited to the celebration.In support of local military veterans and those across the country, Cabarrus is joining the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers (NACVSO) for Operation Green Light. This initiative shows support for veterans by lighting county buildings and infrastructure green from November 7 to November 13.
The Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners recognized the contributions and sacrifices of the local men and women who served in the armed forces with a proclamation at its October meeting.
