Veterans and military-affiliated students and families are invited to stop by and enjoy cake with the Veteran Support Team and Veterans Club members.

The Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 11, in front of the flagpoles at the Student Services Center.

All are invited to join the LCCC campus community to honor and remember those who have served.
