The East Lake County Library plans to honor local veterans from the East Lake area with a Veteran’s Wall located in the library. A ceremony will take place June 11th at 6 p.m. with guest speakers District 4 County Commissioner Leslie Campione and Grace Baptist Church Pastor Robert Mireles. The event will include a special flag ceremony by Cub Scout Pack 16 from Mount Dora.
The Veteran’s Wall is located in the library and will display plaques with the veteran’s name, theater of war and branch of armed service. The East Lake County Library working in conjunction with the Sorrento Cemetery Association and the East Lake Historical Society contributed names to the wall. After the ceremony, library staff will be taking applications from residents of East Lake County who would like to add their local heroes and loved ones to the Veteran’s Wall.
Refreshments will be served. East Lake County Library is located at 31340 C.R. 437 South, Sorrento, FL 32776. For additional information contact Scott Amey at 352-383-9980
