Celebrate Armed Forces Day (Gwinnett)

Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation is pleased to host Armed Forces Day Remembrance on Sat., May 19 to pay tribute to men and women who have served or presently are a part of the United States’ armed forces.

The event will be held on the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse grounds in downtown Lawrenceville from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Displays will feature mock military campsites, uniform clad military reenactors, and military vehicles. There will be food concessions, music, and entertainment in the gazebo for all to enjoy. This free family event is made possible by the generous sponsorships of Tom Wages Funeral Service and Conder Flags of Atlanta.

A Breakfast with the Veterans will be held at 8:30 a.m. that same day for those pre-registered. The cost for the breakfast is $9 per person and will allow participants the opportunity to meet with veterans, hear presentations by active duty and retired U.S. military, and take a guided tour of the Gwinnett Veterans Memorial Museum. Registration for the breakfast must be made in advance by calling the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse at 770-822-5450.
