Veterans Day is a day where we can celebrate those who have served our country in the armed forces. It is a very important holiday. Without the service of these men and women, our country would not be what it is today. Free. Because of their love of our country, they put their lives on the line fighting for it. On November 11th, it is our duty to honor these men and women who have done so much for us and for America. Because Veterans Day is such a big day for our veterans and our country, many states hold Veterans Day festivities. If you are in New Hampshire, there are a few things to attend.
Veterans Day Breakfast
On November 11, 2015, the Derryfield Country Club and Restaurant is holding a Veterans Day Breakfast. It is located at 625 Mammoth Road, Manchester, New Hampshire. This breakfast is to support the veterans transitioning from homelessness at Liberty House. Breakfast will be a buffet, and coffee and tea will be served at the tables by a local celebrity wait staff. Even Manchester’s own Mayor Gatsas is pitching in. Tickets are $25 at the door and the cost for veterans is $20. The breakfast is held from 8am to 9:15am, giving you a chance to have a hot breakfast and help local veterans before you head to the parade.
Veterans Day Parade
Manchester, New Hampshire’s annual Veterans Day parade will be held on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 at 10:30am. The parade will start on Elm Street and end at Veteran’s Park on Elm Street in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Veterans Day Appreciation Program
This event is being held in Colebrook, New Hampshire on November 10, 2015. It is a free event for everyone who wants to show their appreciation to the veterans who have risked their lives to fight for our country.
This is a special boating excursion on Squam Lake in Holderness, New Hampshire to honor veterans. The day consists of a two hour tour of Squam Lake, visiting the site where the movie On Golden Pond was filmed.
Help for Struggling Veterans
The transition from serving our country to coming home back to normal life is difficult for some veterans. Some come home with physical injuries and some come home with mental issues. Whatever the problem, there are places that war veterans can turn for help.
