Honor your loved one by bringing in a photo of your military hero and adding it as an ornament to the Heroes tree starting Monday, November 11th at 3: 00 p.m. The tree will be located in the genealogy department of the Rensselaer Library. 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. 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 (219) 866-5881.
