After the presentation of colours, there's of the events will be held in Building 7 and feature guest speakers and food.

This will include the Travis Manion Foundation Character Matters presentation by Emma Kirby, the Northwest Region Manager.

The Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) "empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations," ac- cording to its website, www. travismanion.org.

"Everyone is welcome to come to see this inspiring presentation," said Kendall Evans, the Veterans Services specialist at Highline.

"Come participate and let this institution know that our student veterans are trained leaders and not invisible," Evans said.

Later in the weekend, Highline's Veterans Services office will be walking in a parade in Auburn.

The City of Auburn is hosting its 53rd annual Veterans Day Parade on Saturday at 11 a.m. on Main Street.

The parade proceeds west on Main from E Street to A Street Southwest/Northwest near Auburn City Hall and will go on for two and a half hours.

"The Auburn parade is the largest of its kind on this side of the Mississippi," Evans said.

There will be nearly 6,000 parade participants, more than 25 marching bands, as well as local Junior ROTC units, honor guards, mili- tary units and antique military vehicles.

"During this parade, the Highline Veterans Services are honoring Gold Star families by walking with them while hold- ing banners of fallen service members," Evans said.

Gold Star families are the relatives of U.S. military members who died in battle. Highline Veterans Services has been helping in the parade for two years.

If anyone wants to participate in the parade, contact Evans at keevans@highline.edu or in Building 6, room 130.
