All Invited to Town of Davidson’s Veterans Day Program:
Monday, November 11 at 11:00 a.m. at Davidson Town Hall
DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Town of Davidson invites all community members to Davidson Town Hall on Monday, November 11 at 11:00 a.m. to commemorate Veterans Day. The program features keynote speaker Kevin Kuwik, the Hough High School Wind Ensemble and Junior ROTC, and the participation of many community members.
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, which marked the end of World War I in 1918. The armistice that ceased the fighting was signed on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11:00 a.m. The tradition of having a ceremony on that date and at that time has endured. Armistice Day eventually evolved into Veterans Day, which honors veterans of all wars. This year, we’re celebrating on the national day of observance.
The ceremony will take place on the front steps of town hall. Chairs will be provided for attendees. Please join us.
Following the ceremony, community members are invited to move inside town hall to attend the inaugural Veterans Town Hall event. Veterans will have the opportunity to speak about what it is like to go to war and then return to their home communities. Interested veterans can sign up here: https://www.veteranstownhall.com/
In honor of Veterans Day, please gather on Sunday, November 3 at 1:30 p.m. at Mimosa Cemetery on South Street to place flags on veterans' graves. Volunteers from Hough High School’s Junior ROTC and others will visit all town cemeteries. All are welcome to participate.
