The remembrance runs from 9:30 to 10:30 Thursday at the community center's American flagpole, located off Twin Peaks between Silverbell and Coachline.

Following opening remarks, the Sunflower Chorale sings "The Star-Spangled Banner." George Gasdaska offers a Veterans Day prayer.

The names of deceased Sunflower veterans are being read by representatives of each branch of the military service.

The chorale sings patriotic songs. Taps concludes the service.
