DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Town of Davidson invites all citizens to Davidson Town Hall on Saturday, November 11 at 11:00 a.m. to commemorate Veterans Day. The program features keynote speaker Retired Navy Captain Robert Cameron, Davidson College’s a cappella group, the Delilahs, the Hough High School Wind Ensemble and Junior ROTC, and the participation of many community members.
Veterans Day was originally known as Armistice Day, which marked the end of World War I in 1918. The armistice that ceased the fighting was signed on the 11th day of the 11th month at 11:00 a.m. The tradition of having a ceremony on that date and at that time has endured. Armistice Day eventually evolved into Veterans Day, which honors veterans of all wars.
The ceremony will be on the front steps of town hall. Chairs will be provided for attendees. Please join us.
In honor of Veterans Day, please gather on Sunday, November 5 at 2:00 p.m. at Mimosa Cemetery on South Street to place flags on veterans' graves. Volunteers from Hough High School’s Junior ROTC and others will visit all town cemeteries. All are welcome to participate.
