Saturday 10:00am at keller Memorial Park the City of Keller will be having a Veteran’s Day Ceremony and dedication of “Protector of Freedom” statue.
Sunday Christian Life Church is holding a big event:
How do you plan to honor our troops this Veteran’s Day? Members of Christian Life Center in Keller answered that question in their typical fashion–BIG.
Their celebration, billed as North Texas Veteran’s Day, will be held at 129 Pecan Street in Keller on Sunday, November 9, with a C-130 flyovers and address by a two-star general. The day’s festivities, which begin at 10 a.m. and run till 4 p.m., also include a car show, a street festival, kickboxing demonstrations, and a catered lunch, free for veterans.
The idea for the celebration came from a conversation between Dr. John King, pastor of Christian Life Center, and Col. David McMinn, Commander of the 136th Airlift Wing. King has spoken to the 136th several times on leadership and a relationship developed. When Dr. King asked Col. McMinn, “What can we, as a church, do for the troops?” Col. McMinn answered, “Honor them.”
Dr. King brought that charge back to his church members, and they wholeheartedly agreed, deciding to give an entire Sunday to celebrate the sacrifice of our military and their families.
“We want North Texas Veteran’s Day to be a fun celebration for the entire family, as well as an opportunity to honor our veterans,” said Dr. John King, co-chair of the North Texas Veterans Association.
