Verterans Day 2010

The annual Veterans Day ceremonies were held in the new addition to Weston Cemetery yesterday . The invocation was given by Fr. Gilbert from Saint Joseph's College and the main speaker was sheriff-elect Terry Risner.

The ceremonies concluded with a 21-gun salute and taps.

Here is a brief note on the history of Veterans Day and why the ceremonies in Weston Cemetery were on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
