Local Heroes to Be Honored on Veterans Day

Join the Veterans Coalition of Coral Springs and City Officials as they honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s veterans on Saturday, November 11th. The ceremony starts at 10:45 a.m. and will be held at Veterans Park in Coral Springs, 8601 Royal Palm Blvd. Officiating the event is the President of the Coral Springs Veterans Coalition, Ernie Kubasek, along with Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook.

Home Town Heroes

The city of Coral Springs is also honoring veterans via its Hometown Heroes Program. Banners are hung along University Drive, from Royal Palm Boulevard to Ramblewood Drive, featuring the faces of city veterans or service members, along with the branch of the military they served on a quarterly basis.

The Hometown Heroes Banner program was started in 2021 to recognize Coral Springs community members who served or are serving in the armed forces. Eligible military branches for the program include the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Navy, Marines, Space Force, and National Guard-Active Reserves.

Veterans’ Park Bricks

To assist families and friends in honoring veterans, residents can purchase a commemorative brick, which is unveiled during Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies held at Veterans Park each year (orders must be received six weeks prior to the unveiling events). The commemorative brick is available for a donation of $50 made payable to the Veterans Coalition of Coral Springs.

The City of Parkland will commemorate Veteran’s Day on Saturday, November 11th. Gather with your community at Veterans Park, located at 6620 N University Drive in Parkland, at 11:00 am. The day’s program will feature participation from the BSO-Parkland District, Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department, and the Honor Guards. Expect an impressive display from the MSD JROTC as they present the colors. Additionally, we’ll be graced with words from local veteran speakers, touching poem recitations, and a wreath presentation. The ceremony will culminate in a soul-stirring TAPS performance. 

“The City of Parkland has held a Veterans Day ceremony back as far as 2013 when Veterans Park opened in Parkland adjacent to the Parkland Library,” said Todd DeAngelis, Chief Communications Officer for the City of Parkland, adding, “This is an important holiday for the community to come together to honor veterans and victims of all wars. This event is a product of the residents of the City of Parkland and the City Commission wanting to honor veterans and victims of wars. With the opening of Veterans Park adjacent to the Parkland Library, it’s a natural event for the City to host.”
