Adams State College re-dedicates building to veterans

(11-05-2010)

President F.D. Roosevelt's famous quote, "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy", described the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack forced the United States into World War II. After the war ended, the Adams State College Student Union Memorial Building was named in honor of those who served in World War II. The building is currently the site of ASC Community Partnerships. In honor of all San Luis Valley veterans, the building will be rededicated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 13.

Adams State President David Svaldi and Mindy Montague, Colorado State Veterans Center administrator, will rededicate the ASC Community Outreach Building. The rededication will include a ribbon cutting ceremony, music, food, and veteran artwork and memorabilia. The event is free and open to the public and will continue until 1 p.m.

ASC Community Partnerships current show, The Veterans' Exhibit, is on display in the gallery from 8 a.m. to 5p.m. Monday through Friday, through November 24. ASC Community Partnerships is located on the corner of Main St. and Edgemont Blvd. in Alamosa, Colo. Contact Community Partnerships at 719-587-8209 for more information.
