Vets day

 The City of Menifee will be hosting events to honor our nation’s veterans and active service members on Monday, Nov. 11. The Veterans 5K will be held at Wheatfield Park (30627 Menifee Rd.) from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Veterans Day Celebration will also be held at Wheatfield Park at 10 a.m.  “These events represent the great pride the Menifee community feels for our veterans and active service members,” said Community Services Director, Jonathan Nicks. “Those who have answered the call to serve this nation deserve to be celebrated and we are honored and humbled to be doing that for them with our events on Veterans Day.”  The Veterans 5K is open to all ages and abilities and features a 5K walk/run, a one-mile race and a kids 1K run. The event will also host a health and wellness expo, a post run event ceremony and vendor booths. Those who wish to register can do so at www.veteransdayrideandrun.com.

Winners of the Veterans Day Essay Contest will also be announced and awarded at the ceremony. The topic of this year’s contest is “My Hero Doesn’t Wear a Cape,” with local students submitting essays about a veteran or active service member and why they are a hero.  “As a veteran, I am honored to be a part of our Veterans Day festivities,” said District 4 Council member Dean Deines. “Our veterans and active service members represent the courage and strength that make our country the greatest in the world. It means a great deal that we take the time to show our appreciation for all they have done and continue to do.”  “I am proud to have served my country and equally proud to honor our nation’s veterans at our events on Nov. 11,” said Mayor Pro Tem, Greg August. “I look forward to joining with our residents to show gratitude for all men and women who are serving or have served our great country.”  #
