Veterans Day Public Ceremony
The City Council, Chamber of Commerce, neighbors, and friends join together to honor and thank all who have served and continue to serve our country in the armed forces.
Captain John Payne serves as MC. A local Boy Scout troop conducts the flag salute. Live performances include a dance routine by L.A. Swing Dance Posse and patriotic songs by Kathy Bee, Destiny Malibu, Yolanda Tolentino and local Malibu high and middle school students. Malibu Poet Laureate Ricardo Means Ybarra reads a patriotic poem he wrote to commemorate Veterans Day. The Navy Cadets post and retire the flags. Flags from Pepperdine's annual 9/11 memorial flag exhibition are displayed along the road leading up to City Hall. The Boy Scouts distribute American flag pins to all attending Veterans and service members.
A free reception with refreshments is open to all guests following the ceremony.
