Chelsea Community Honors Local Veterans

The City of Chelsea will be holding the 2018 Veterans Day observance in partnership with the Chelsea District Library (CDL), American Legion Post #312, VFW Post & Auxiliary No. 4076 and Silver Maples of Chelsea on Sunday, November 11, 2018.  All of the local veterans, their families and the public are invited to join us for this free event.  City of Chelsea’s Mayor Melissa Johnson will introduce this year’s honored veterans, after starting the event with a Tribute to the Fallen in Veterans Park at 1:00 p.m.

Following this tribute, members of the public, our honored veterans, and their families are invited to Silver Maples of Chelsea for light refreshments and a viewing of the award-winning film “The Way We Get By” at 2:00 p.m.  This film follows the story of 3 unsung heroes who greet all US troops as they arrive or depart from Iraq.  It is part of PBS’s award-winning nonfiction film series POV.  For more information about the film series, you can go to pbs.org/pov.  Silver Maples of Chelsea is located at 100 Silver Maples Drive, Chelsea, MI.
