By Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation

Veterans Weekend Concert on Sunday, Nov. 9

Do you know a woman who is a veteran or is currently active duty or otherwise enlisted? The Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation is presenting the annual free Veterans Weekend concert in Santa Barbara to honor our nation’s military veterans and current personnel. Producer and Board member Marilyn Gilbert has chosen the theme of “Honoring Women in the Military.” The concert isis a patriotic musical tribute, performed by full orchestra, the Santa Barbara Choral Society, bagpipers, soloists, speakers and more.

Gilbert is seeking to connect with as many women in the military – past and present – to have them participate in what she sees as a thrilling way to start the concert. “My idea is to have a phalanx of women – 100 strong I hope - march up the center aisle of the First Presbyterian Church to kick off the concert this year,” said Gilbert. “It’s time to honor the ‘silent majority’ and thank them for their service to this country.” To sign up, please contact Marilyn Gilbert at (805) 969-7183 or by email: [email protected].

All veterans, current military personnel and the public are invited to attend the concert free of charge. Sunday, November 9th at 3:00 pm, at the First Presbyterian Church, located at State and Constance Streets. Save the date! For more information call (805) 259-4394
