CD alums to hold Veterans Day Ceremony on Friday

Event to include formal start of Veterans Memorial project at high school.

The Central Dauphin High School Alumni Association is hosting a Veterans Day Ceremony on Friday, November 11, 11 am in the auditorium of the high school at 437 Piketown Road. The event is open to the public and will pay tribute to all veterans, with special recognition of the thirteen CDHS graduates who have been killed in action while serving our country. At the conclusion of the program, a brief groundbreaking ceremony will be held on the future site of the new Veterans Memorial being constructed by the alumni association.

Among the expected attendees are local veterans and community members, alumni, school district administrators, township supervisors, county commissioners and state senators.

The $60,000 granite and brick memorial project is being completely funded by private donations and is scheduled to begin construction in the spring. In addition to making general donations, citizens and businesses are able to purchase engraved granite pavers “in honor of” or “in memory of” anyone. Details on how to make a donation, to be a sponsor, or to purchase a paver are available on the CDHS Alumni Association's website, or by calling (717) 541-0220.
