Collier County Veterans Council Traditional Programming 

The Veterans Council conducts several public patriotic ceremonies throughout the year.  They include Memorial Day, Indedpendence Day parade, Veterans Day, and Flag Day(June 14).  Council members staff these events by organizing speakers, setting up venues, speaking to crowds, and performing patriotic rituals.

In addition, we gather to support funerals of veterans in Lee and Collier Counties.  We also volunteer to staff veteran-related fund raisers and special events.  Our monthly meetings provide a friendly forum where veteran groups can make public announcements, network, and support each other with information.  They are given a platform to announce their upcoming events, recent successes, and invite veterans to support their cause.

Kendyll's Birthday Donation Event!!!!!

Listen to Keni Thomas speak at this event coming up in November!!

We commemorate Veterans Day in Naples with a large ceremony in Cambier Park. This year, November 11th is a Saturday. 

Veterans Day is observed on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour in honor of the armistice in Europe, 1918. The red poppy symbolizes the staggering bloodshed of the "War to End All Wars" between the Allies and Germany.
