Massing of the Colors and Veterans Day Program

November 2 - November 11

A memorial to each military service member who has died in combat since 9/11, the “Massing of the Colors” will be on display Saturday, Nov. 2 – Tuesday, Nov. 12, in the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown’s Veterans Grove. The public is invited to walk through and view the flag display at their leisure. It will be lit for nighttime viewing. The display will be removed on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

The National Sojourners – Harrisburg Chapter No. 76 created the “Massing of the Colors” memorial in 2004 and has displayed the flags at Masonic Village since 2011. Volunteers from Masonic Village, the Sojourners and the community will help set up the nearly 7,000 American flags with approximately 300 flags representing soldiers from the Keystone state.

On Monday, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. (with musical prelude at 1:30 p.m.), a Veterans Day Program will be held in the Freemasons Cultural Center’s Brossman Ballroom honoring all U.S. military service personnel, present and past, with special recognition of Vietnam War veterans. The March Masters and Masonic Village’s Men’s Chorus will perform. Guest speaker is Brig. Gen. David E. Wood, of the Pennsylvania National Guard.

As our nation pauses to honor our veterans next month, visit Masonic Village to reflect and remember the sacrifices of our fallen heroes.
