Southborough residents are invited to honor our country’s veterans at a Veterans Day observance tomorrow.

VFW Post 3276 Commander Steve Whynot issued his annual invitation for the Town’s Veterans Day ceremonies:

We welcome the residents of Southborough to join with us at the All Wars Memorial on Tuesday – November 11th.

The observance will begin at the traditional 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

I’d like to extend an invitation to all Veterans – Young and old – to join with the Veterans of the American Legion Post 161 and VFW Post 3276 at our Veterans Day Observance on Tuesday – November 11th at the All Wars Memorial.

Veterans will meet at the Post Headquarters at 1015 to form up and march to the All Wars Memorial.

Please join with us in remembering our fallen and honoring those who serve today and all those who have served our nation.

Traditionally, veterans are joined by town Scout groups, Algonquin students and representatives from the State House and Board of Selectmen. (As stated above, that’s at 10:15 am.)

The procession to the memorial begins at 10:45 am to the All Wars Memorial on the common across from the library.

At 11:00 am, Veterans hold a ceremony including readings and patriotic music, which usually lasts 30 to 40 minutes.
