Veteran’s Day observance planned
Penn State Wilkes-Barre will observe Veteran’s Day on Friday, November 11, with a service at noon in the Student Commons. The American flag used in the commemoration of 9/11 at Kirby Park and donated to the campus by the Students for Justice will be on display. The flag bears the names of all the victims of 9/11 and was recently framed for permanent exhibit in the Commons thanks to funding by the Student Activity Fee committee.
Donations are being accepted for the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA), a non-profit organization that provides support services to military service members and their families. ASYMCA offers programs including childcare, hospital assistance, spouse support services, food services, computer training classes, health and wellness services, and holiday meals. In 2004, the ASYMCA served more than 433,340 military family participants. Donations to the ASYMCA will be accepted by Kathy Pesta in Hayfield House, room 101.
Refreshments will be provided by the Campus Environment Team.
