Weekend Spotlight: Veterans Day [VIDEO]

Find out how you can celebrate Veterans Day this weekend and support your local veterans by participating in the Distribution of Poppies.

Note: The City of Smyrna is holding a Veterans Day ceremony at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11, at Brinkley Park, in addition to the Veterans Day service held by The American Legion 160 at 11 a.m. outside of the Legion office on 160 Legion Drive. 

This week's Cobb, Douglas and Paulding Weekend Spotlight features an area Veterans Day event in Smyrna where residents can show their support for local veterans.

The 5th Annual Smyrna Veterans Day Service will be held this Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. at Brinkley Park next to The American Legion Post 160 office at 160 Legion Drive SE in Smyrna. The event is open to the public.

Residents can help support local veterans and their families by making donations at the Distribution of Poppies events by the Auxiliary of American Legion Post 160 throughout the weekend (watch the video above for details on time and location).

The Auxiliary distribute poppies on both Memorial weekend and Veterans weekend to raise money to aid veterans and their families.

Kennesaw will honor the service of military members past and present with a complimentary lunch at noon Saturday at the Ben Robertson Community Center.
