Last week, Get Out was filled with Halloween events. This week, Veterans' Day is the holiday that gets the most love. Share some of that affection with your community this Friday and let the vets know that you thank them and you care. Now, if military matters don't matter much to you, that's okay too. There are events you can enjoy too this weekend, including a choral-music concert in Morristown, video horse racing in Butler and a Pokemon tournament in Warren. (Did you know Pokemon was still around? News to us!)
