Veterans Day events honor veterans
Two Veterans Day events are planned in Bella Vista.
Bella Vista American Legion Post 341 will host a Veterans Day program at the Veterans’ Wall of Honor beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11. Guest speaker will be Brig. Gen. Bernie Skoch (USAF retired). The Post will also honor local recipients of the Purple Heart. Music will be provided by the United Lutheran Band and Church Mixed Quartet and the Melody Lane Quartet. Bring a lawn chair. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the American Legion Post at U.S. 71 and Kingsland Road. The Wall is located on the north shore of Lake Bella Vista.

The event is at the Bella Vista Community Church at 3 p.m. Nov. 11. This concert is a fundraiser for the National Cemetery in Fayetteville and the Veterans Wall of Honor in Bella Vista.
