(Indianapolis, Ind.) - The Veterans Day Council of Indianapolis, Inc., a voluntary non-profit organization fostering a wholesome relationship between the community and veterans of our Armed Forces, is today announcing the cancelation of the annual Veterans Day breakfast and parade. “The Veterans Day Council board of directors have been closely monitoring conditions concerning public health,” said Jill Druskis, President of the Veterans Day Council of Indianapolis. “The Council’s decision to cancel its in-person events was taken out of a great abundance of caution for safeguarding the health and well-being of spectators, participants, and volunteers. “

In place of the annual events held near The American Legion Mall in Downtown Indianapolis, the Veterans Day Council will present a Veterans Day virtual service and awards ceremony to honor veterans. The virtual service will be live-streamed online at 11:00 a.m. on Veterans Day.

“The Council invites Central Indiana and now American's worldwide to join us as we honor our military veterans for 'their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good',” said Druskis.
