The Nebraska Supreme Court and the Nebraska State Bar Foundation have partnered with the Lincoln County Bar Association to honor Nebraska veterans in conjunction with the community Law Day Luncheon Celebration to be held Monday, May 5, 2014, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Sandhills Convention Center in North Platte.
The Bar Foundation’s Law-Related Education theme this year is “American Veterans - Everyday Heroes” which celebrates those who so honorably served in the United States military. The theme stems from the 2014 “One Book One Nebraska” reading program choice of Once Upon a Town: The story about the North Platte Canteen, a World War II project of support for all of the soldiers who rode the train through their town.
The luncheon highlight will be the North Platte Canteen Volunteers and WWII Veterans who will share their experiences. The program will be moderated by Jim Griffin of the Lincoln County Historical Museum. The public is invited to attend the educational program.
The Honorable Frankie J. Moore will preside over the celebration activities. President of the Lincoln County Bar, William Troshynski, will present the Liberty Bell Award at the luncheon.
Special guests include Chief Justice Mike Heavican of the Nebraska Supreme Court and St. Patrick’s High School Student Council, for their sponsorship of a project honoring wounded warriors.
Area veterans are invited to attend the luncheon and program as guests of the Bar Foundation. There is a cost of $18 for members of the public or others (except the veterans and student council guests) to attend. Questions and reservations: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Bar Foundation at 800-773-5396.
