Veterans Day Ceremony

The Highground cordially invites the community to gather for their annual Veterans Day Ceremony on Wednesday, November 11, beginning at 10am.
Starting the day at 10am, the Wisconsin KIA/MIA/POW names from WWII to present day will be read and honored with the tolling of The Highground Liberty Bell. With all present and accounted for, the Thorp VFW Post #9057 will present Colors on the Plaza at 11am. We will also have the honor of presenting Betty Sitler as our guest speaker. Betty is the wife of Harold “Red” Sitler, who was captured at Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War and held as a POW for three long years.
Veteran support and services will be onsite for continued resources. Coffee and cookies will be served.
Note: Due to the COVID-19 extended and stricter state-mandated mask requirement, the event will be held outdoors and the length will be determined by the weather.
Attendees are also invited to stop by The Highground Museum to explore the “We Were There: Korea” exhibit for an unforgettable experience.
For questions about the ceremony, please contact Bonnie at events@thehighground.us or call  715-743-4224.

The Highground is located at W7031 Ridge Rd in Neillsville, WI 54456
