Veterans' Day Program

I'm told there will be a Veterans' Day observance at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 at the Veterans' Center, 400 East Front Street.

According to a flier sent to me, the program will include a "mini-parade" at 10:30 a.m. starting at Roosevelt Avenue and East Front Street. There will also be special performances by the Plainfield High School R.O.T.C. and marching band, a gun salute tribute, special presentations and prayer, free music and giveaways. Refreshments will be served.

Those who attend are asked to park behind the Senior Center at 305 East Front Street or on Westervelt or Sandford avenues.

In the past, observances have taken place at the War Memorial on Watchung Avenue. There is no notice of this program on the city web site. I will update if more information becomes available.
