Hospice of Lenawee is hosting a drive-in event for Lenawee County Veterans from 10 a.m. to noon at its office and residence, 1903 Wolf Creek Highway in Adrian. Each veteran will receive a half pint of Kapnick Orchards Apple Butter, while supplies last, as a thank you for their service, a press release said. Registration is not compulsory. Upon entering the Hospice of Lenawee parking lot, guests are asked to drive straight to the administration building. Hospice staff will be outside to greet veterans with their gifts. Everyone can stay in their car.

TECUMSEH: Tecumseh’s annual Veterans Day Ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. at Brookside Cemetery.

The Tecumseh Center for the Arts has partnered with the Elizabeth Ruthruff Wilson Foundation to present a free Veterans Day concert at 7 p.m., according to a news release. The concert includes guest speakers and a musical performance by the Dodworth Saxhorn Band. The DSB is modeled after the Dodworth Band of New York, which was America’s premier marching band from the 1840s through the 1880s. In keeping with its living historical origins, the DSB uses only brass and percussion instruments that were constructed in the 1800s. Antique horns are cone-bored instruments commonly known as “saxhorns”. These handmade saxhorns are higher in pitch than modern brass instruments and produce a unique, smooth sound. This class of brass instruments was invented in the early 1800s by Belgian instrument maker Adolph Sax.

The band has performed at the Great American Brass Band Festival in Danville, Kentucky, the Tall Stacks Festival in Cincinnati, the Victorian Ball for the centennial of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Greenfield Village, and the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library in Fremont, Ohio. His performances have also been featured in Ken Burns’ PBS documentaries “Baseball,” “Jazz,” and “The Roosevelts.”

General admission seats will be available until capacity, 572 seats, is reached. Doors open 1 hour before the performance.
