Lawrenceville invites veterans to 'A Day of Honor'

LAWRENCEVILLE -- To honor armed service veterans for Veterans Day, the city of Lawrenceville invites all veterans to "A Day of Honor" at the city's visitors center on Friday, two days before the official holiday.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., veterans from many different backgrounds and branches unite for an afternoon complete with an "all-American" lunch, live music performed by a "patriotic" band and a speech given by State Representative Buzz Brockway.

For those veterans who are struggling while looking for a job, the Georgia Department of Labor is offering a resume and employment workshop during the event.

The Disabled American Veterans will also be on site giving medical and benefit counseling for those in need.

Admission is free.

The visitors center is located at 233 E. Crogan St. in Lawrenceville.
