Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Veterans Day Ceremony will not be held. All who have served in our country’s armed forces will be in our grateful thoughts and prayers.
The annual Veterans Day Ceremony will be held on Monday, November 12, as the federal government is honoring the occasion with a holiday on that date. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own portable seating and dress warmly.
Due to the cold-weather forecast, the Veterans Day ceremony scheduled for this Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 11 am, will be held in the library meeting room.
The annual Veterans Day Ceremony will be held at the Great Falls Freedom Memorial (behind the library) this upcoming Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 11 am—the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
