Every year the nation honors its veterans on November 11th but Harlandale ISD plans to recognize military members 10 days earlier. The district is hosting Veterans Honor Night on November 1, prior to the McCollum vs. Southside football game at Harlandale Memorial Stadium.
All veterans are invited to a tailgate-style reception beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the southwest corner of the field. The ceremony will take place at 6:30 p.m. Veterans will be allowed to enter for free via the home side Pass Gate and can watch the game from underneath the tent. If a veteran wishes to purchase a reserved seat, stop by the Athletics Office, 1201 96th St., Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:15 p.m. Price is $8 per ticket. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
