  4. Veterans Memorial Re-Dedication Ceremony

    November 8, 2019, 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM @ Donnelly Park

    Please join Mayor Nick Girone and members of American Legion Post 35 for the official re-dedication of the Veterans Memorial Statue located at the corner of 5th Avenue and Baker Street, in front of City Hall. The Memorial stood long in disrepair until Public Works Crews took the initiative to clean, polish and pressure wash the memorial, revealing a stunning tribute to all of our veterans from many wars. There will be an unveiling following words from Mayor Girone and the American Legion Post 35. We encourage veterans and families of active military members to come out and pay tribute to those who give service and have sacrificed for our freedom. The ceremony starts at 10 a.m. Mount Dora Pipes and Drums will be there paying tribute to all branches of the military.
