F1001 Fall 2018 OLLI’s Fourth Annual Veterans Day Celebration
Friday, 1:00–3:00, Nov. 9
Coordinator: Martha Powers
Join us as we honor our OLLI member veterans and the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. We’ll begin with the presentation of the colors by the Fairfax Police Ceremonial Honor Guard followed by the audience singing the national anthem. Next, all veterans will be recognized to the tunes of each branch’s anthem, and then we’ll be serenaded by the award-winning barbershop quartet Antiques Roadshow. Finally, we’ll enjoy our feature film, The Hello Girls, about 223 female members of the US Army Signal Corps who served as telephone operators in Europe in WWI—yet were not recognized for their service until 60 years afterward. This captivating one-hour documentary (newly released and not yet shown in theaters or televised) will be introduced by its director, James Theres, who will also respond to questions afterward.
