College to host 10th annual Veterans Day Dinner

Veterans Day Dinner

Panola College will host its 10th annual Veterans Day Dinner on Friday, November 10 at 6 p.m. in the Frances B. Ross Ballroom of the Charles C. Matthews Foundation Student Center. The event is free of charge to attend for any East Texas service member and one guest.

Coordinating the event are two Panola College service organizations: The Green Jackets, who serve the College and community as goodwill ambassadors, and the Student Government Association. The event is sponsored by the Green Jackets and SGA, along with area individuals, organizations, and businesses.

Individuals who wish to honor a Veteran may purchase a Flag of Honor for $25. The 3’x5’ flag will be mounted on a 6’ pole and placed at Panola College along Bird Drive from Oct. 30 to Nov. 13. Each flag will include a sign with the Veteran’s name, branch of service, and a personal message from the donor.

Information about additional sponsorships may be found here. Funds raised from sponsorships will be used to fund this year’s Veterans Day Dinner, benefit the Panola County Texas Veterans Relief Fund, and fund future Panola College Veterans events.

Veterans and their guests who wish to attend the Veterans Day Dinner must make a reservation by Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. by completing the online form at panola.edu/veteransday.
