Veterans Day Ceremony

Monday, November 12, 2018

York County Historical Committee presents, “Letters from War”, theme for this annual event in which all veterans are honored.

Held in the 2nd floor Board Meeting Room in York Hall, this commemoration includes the reading of excerpts from letters written by local soldiers, sailors, and airmen to their family members back home while on wartime deployment. In addition to concentrating on some of these little known, unsung heroes who have served our country, the service will also include tolling of the bell, presentation of the colors, singing of the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance and “Taps.” There will also be a special recognition of all veterans of our Armed Forces. Participants in the program include the York High School NJROTC, the Comte de Grasse Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, The Moore House Society, Children of the American Revolution, and Chapter 13 of the Disabled American Veterans. Veterans of Foreign Wars Chapter 824 will act as the Color Guard for the ceremony.
