Veteran’s Day Celebrations at NECC

NECC will be celebrating Veteran and Military Appreciation Week from Nov. 9 to Nov. 12.

On Monday, there will be a panel of veterans answering questions about transitioning from military life to student life in TC103 and L244 at noon. This event is closed to faculty, staff and veterans.

“Darkness and Light,” a documentary focusing on post-9/11 veterans by Thi Linh Wernau, will be shown on the Haverhill campus Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Lecture Hall A. The Sports and Fitness Center will simultaneously be holding a basketball game to honor veterans. During the game, there will be a fundraiser for Operation Hat Trick, an organization that helps support wounded soldiers and their families. Veterans and military service members alike will be honored during halftime.

On Wednesday, the college will be closed in honor of service members past and present.

To wrap up Veteran and Military Appreciation Week, there will be a luncheon honoring student, faculty and staff veterans and military service members in TC103 from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday.

Anyone interested in attending the film or the luncheon should contact the Student Engagement Center at (978) 556‐3731 or to RSVP.

The Veteran Service Organization meets every other Monday at 5:30 p.m. in SC213 in Haverhill.
