Traveling exhibit, ceremony part of Veterans Day events

Navy Band Great Lakes performing at North Star

The Stockbridge-Munsee Tribe will be honoring all veterans with several events Nov. 10-11 at the North Star Mohican Resort and Casino, W12180 County Road A, Bowler.

The event center will be open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days for the public to tour and hear the story of the traveling veterans wall by Ron Smith, a U.S. Marine veteran and creator. Patricia Sexton and Ron Smith of American Legion Post 83 in Ohio are co-creators of the wall and will also present.

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum traveling exhibit “Wisconsin Remembers: A Face for Every Name” features 1,161 Wisconsinites on the Wall. The spirit of America’s story, the wall is a traveling exhibit commemorating the country’s fight for freedom from 1775 to the present day.

There will be a veterans ceremony to honor those who have served at 11 a.m. Saturday in the North Star Event Center.

The ceremony will feature America’s band, Navy Band Great Lakes. As the ambassadors to the Midwest, Navy Band Great Lakes’ primary responsibility is supporting Navy outreach in an 11-state area. All of the band’s primary performing units embark on concert tours each year throughout the Midwest, allowing the band to reach out to audiences that do not have opportunities to see sailors on a regular basis. Performances are family-friendly events, meant to be entertaining and patriotic for young and old alike.

All Navy Band Great Lakes performances are free and open to the public. For information, go to
