Today is Veterans Day. There are many events and activities for veterans in Northwest Colorado Friday, to thank vets for their service to our country and our way of life. Veterans and current active duty military will receive free entrance Friday at all Colorado State Parks. They will still have to purchase hunting, camping, and fishing licenses if they plan on participating in those activities. Moffat County High School is hosting an assembly to honor local veterans in the Auditorium Friday morning beginning at 9. During the assembly, veterans will be honored and recognized for their service. The event will also include a Color Guard Presentation. All community members are invited to attend. There will also be a free lunch Friday for Veterans at the Craig VFW post hosted by the Yampa Valley Young Professionals. The lunch will take place from 11:45 to 1.
