The Veterans Night of Honor is an annual event held at The Lamb’s Chapel in Burlington, NC and hosted by area students to honor Veterans for their dedicated service to our country.
The event began in 2015 as a class project for 8 students who had been partnered with 8 veterans and has grown exponentially. The 2019 event honored more than 800 Veterans and their families who were served dinner followed by a Patriotic Show attended by over 2,000 members of the community. In 2020 we shifted to a different format for the event due to COVID-19 where nearly 500 meals were delivered to over 200 veterans and their families, and the show was produced and streamed on the internet. In 2021 we have continued the meal deliveries, this time over 900 meals to 400 families using 200 volunteers. The Veteran Celebration service will be held on the Sunday morning before Veterans Day at the Lamb's Chapel Airport Campus.
In addition to our annual event, the program now includes a multi-session week long Patriotism Summer Camp for students ages 5 and up, a Veteran Outreach Program and a Care Package ministry that ships hundreds of packages each year to deployed troops stationed throughout the globe.
