Decorate our Heroes Tree


Mon Nov 12, 3:00pm

In celebration of Veteran's Day this November, and in honor of those who have served in the U.S. Military, past and present, the Rensselaer Library is commemorating the occasion with an "Our Heroes Tree," a tree decorated by local veterans and their families with photos of those who have served in the U.S. Military.

The "Heroes Tree" is a tradition that promotes patriotism among members of our community and offers inspiration and encouragement to families who are experiencing separation or loss of their loved one during this holiday season.

Beginning at 3 pm on Monday, November 12th, honor your loved one by bringing in a photo of your military hero and adding it as an ornament to the Heroes tree, set up in the library's Genealogy Department. If you are unable to attend, photos and information may be dropped off and an ornament will be made and added to the tree. Refreshments will be served. For more information, visit or call the Rensselaer Library at 866-5881, Contact Melissa Smith.

Registration required. Call 219-866-5881 or Register Online.
