|50 Plus, Overland Park, Plan Veterans Day Event on Nov. 8|
The Johnson County Park & Recreation District's 50 Plus Department is again teaming with the city of Overland Park to offer Veteran's Day activities on Friday, Nov. 8, at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty, Overland Park.
Participants can join members of the color guard at 8:30 a.m. as they raise the flag and honor veterans. Next up is a special Veteran's Day speaker, followed by a patriotic choral presentation by a barbershop chorus. Enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast from Chris Cakes and veterans eat free. For family members and members of the public, there will be a $5 charge for breakfast. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under special events.

Interpretive services and other accommodations for those with special needs are available and should be requested at time of registration.
