Veterans Day ceremony, Nov. 12

Veterans Day may fall on a Sunday this year, but that doesn't mean that the annual remembrance ceremony on the square will be canceled; the ceremony will be held on the next day, Nov. 12, instead.

Beginning on the square at 11 a.m. Monday, there will be a speech by keynote speaker Doug Gilreath, senior pastor of Covington First United Methodist Church. The Marine Junior ROTC will be posting colors.

According to Post Commander for the American Legion Post 32 Don Floyd, the group has been honoring veterans for more than 30 years.

"It's because of the veterans that we enjoy the freedoms we have today," said Floyd. "It's because of the veterans who have unselfishly given of themselves and some made extreme sacrifices to make sure we enjoy the life we live in this country. Freedom is not free and we need to recognize the living and the deceased, both past and active military."
