PRINCESS ANNE, Md. – After a year’s hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore have announced the return of their “Salute to Our Veterans” gala.
The event, scheduled for Thursday, November 11th, pays tribute to local military veterans and starts at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception at the Richard A. Henson Center on the UMES campus, followed by dinner at 7 p.m.
Individual tickets are $75, while corporate sponsorships for a table of eight are $600.
