The Veterans Wall at Heritage Park (19200 Collins Avenue) displays the names of Sunny Isles Beach residents that have served our country in the military. Every year new names of Sunny Isles Beach residents who have served in the United States Armed Forces are added to the wall.
The Veterans Day ceremony is held on November 11th at 9:30 am each year at the north end of Heritage Park. This year the date falls on a Sunday and every veteran placed on the wall in the past or those new nominees are invited to attend the celebration. A reception follows the ceremony.
Applications are being accepted until September 1, 2012 for this year’s ceremony. Nominate your friends or relatives for this program. A veteran can nominate his or herself for this honor as well. This is a great way to acknowledge someone in your family for their service to our country.
Applications are available online at the City’s website at www.sibfl.net or at the Government Center at 18070 Collins Avenue or Pelican Community Park, 18115 North Bay Road. Please bring proof of honorable discharge from military service and proof of residency in the City of Sunny Isles Beach. Your SIB Resident ID can be used as proof of residency or a utility bill with the veteran’s name. If you miss the deadline, the next opportunity to be placed on the wall will be Veterans Day 2013.
