Harriman Care and Rehabilitation Center decided to celebrate veterans early this year.
Instead of adding to the events planned for Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11, the center has scheduled its event Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
“This is for the community and the ones here,” said Connie Sheldon, quality of life director. “The residents are the ones that came up with this.”
Speakers will include Brian Murphy, who once guarded for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
