The Honor Bell will be taking part in several events this weekend as we honor those who served and are no longer with us.

Please join us at one or more of these locations in celebrating the service and sacrifice of our nation’s departed veterans. The Honor Bell will be tolled at all the events except for the Englewood Memorial Celebration, and we have several guest veteran belladiers scheduled to help honor our service men and women.

The Honor Bell will be present at the Colorado Freedom Memorial for Colorado Remembers: Honoring Those Who Gave All. The event starts at 8am and runs through 1pm.
