There will be more Emporia All Veterans Tribute activities in November, but the slate of activities kicked off Saturday with the 18th Annual All Veterans Tribute Golf Tournament at the Emporia Golf Course.

Longtime organizer Jesse Solis told KVOE News he’s proud to see where the funding is going — Emporia’s veterans groups, All Veterans Memorial and Mexican-American Memorial — and that he was proud to honor veterans for their service in this way.

Looking ahead to the tribute, the list of events has not been released, but activities typically include an art exhibit, student essay contest prizes, Main Street Freedom Fest, Quilts of Gratitude ceremony, a parade and a memorial service.
