The Boulder Chamber is kicking off the holiday season and the lighting of the Boulder Star on Flagstaff Mountain on November 11th. This event is held on Veteran's Day to honor the Active U.S. Military and Veterans that protect our Community and Nation every day. Partnering with the CU Boulder Veterans Alumni Association, there will be a Joint Service Color Guard provided by members of the three Reserve Officer Training Corps Battalions at CU Boulder. Join us for the special evening honoring those who have served.
The Boulder Star was first lit in December 1947 and has made its holiday appearance every year since. The Boulder Star has also been lit to serve as a beacon of Encouragement, Love and Community Support. The Boulder Star was lit during the Iran Hostage Crisis and showing Boulder Solidarity during the worst part of Covid-19. Most recently, the Boulder Chamber relighted the Boulder Star as a demonstration of Community Support and Resilience following the tragic shooting that cost us the lives of our ten community members.
This is Boulder's Star, please join us. #BoulderStrong
