Veterans Day Observance

Sunday, November 11, 2018

On November 11, 1918 - the 11th month, the 11th day, the 11th hour - in France, an armistice was signed to officially end WWI. This Veterans Day, Weston will commemorate the 100th anniversary with two events. At 11:00 a. m. Weston churches will join a nationwide bell-tolling designed to honor Americans who served in the "Great War" 100 years ago, especially the 116,516 who died, including the six from Weston. A short ceremony will be held at that time by the flagpole rock outside Town Hall.
At 1:00 p.m., Rick Wohlers will be coordinating a special Veterans Day program in the Town Hall Auditorium, featuring speeches and choral music. Veterans Day is a time to honor all veterans of the armed services. It is also a day to be proud that we are citizens of a nation made great by the sacrifices and courage of all our military personnel, both at home and abroad. Thank you for your service.
