All are invited to honor our military veterans by attending the 2021 Veterans Day Ceremony at the Sunken Garden in Lombard Common Park, located near the intersection of Grace and Maple Streets, on Thursday, November 11, 2021. The ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m.

Lombard Village President Keith Giagnorio will welcome attendees, and Pastor Jill Terpstra from First Church of Lombard will open the ceremony with an invocation. The keynote speaker will be Lombard resident and Vietnam Veteran Dennis Jensen. Dennis served the United States Navy from 1965 – 1973. Currently, he serves as Commander for the VFW Lilac Post 5815.  

Glenbard East High School student Jayda Swapsy will perform the “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” and TAPS will be played by Glenbard East buglers, TJ Villasenor and Allison Schmuldt.

In an effort to remember the outstanding courage and commitment to freedom made by our veterans, Village President Giagnorio invites all residents, scout troops and families to attend. Residents interested in sitting during the short ceremony are invited to bring lawn chairs. 

The event is organized by Lilac VFW Post 5815 and the Village of Lombard. For more information contact Lombard’s Communications Office at communications@villageoflombard.org or (630) 620-5718.
