Boca Holds Veteran’s Day At Dehoernle Park


By: Diane Emeott Korzen Contributing Writer

DeHoernle Park – where the City of Boca Raton sets off its annual fireworks display – is the new spot for Veteran’s Day.

Across the street from Spanish River Library, the scenic park setting on the lake allows room to serve a Veteran’s Breakfast on picnic tables, host a Veteran’s Resource Fair, hold the traditional Veteran’s Day ceremony under a tent, and to grow the event.

Boca City Council, Boca Community High School Marching Band and NJROTC, Ft. Lauderdale Highlanders Bagpipe Corp, Coastmen Chorus, Honor Guard from City of Boca Police and Fire Services, an ex Vietnam POW who served with John McCain, a retired Lt. Col. who once played football for Boca High, as well as Commanders from the American Legion and U.S. Coast Guard all participated in a Sunday morning, Nov. 11 Veterans Day Ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the Armistice to end WWI.
