Remember our veterans this Wednesday

A Veteran’s Day remembrance ceremony will be held Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. at Veterans Square at East Ferry. During the ceremony, conducted by Jamestown’s American Legion Post and Veterans of Foreign War, Captain Clifton Russell Largess, retired U.S. Navy and a veteran of both World War II and Korea, will also be honored.

Volunteers are needed to help raise more than 100 flags at 7 a.m. on Wednesday and again to remove the flags at 3 p.m. The flags, which honor Jamestown’s deceased veterans, have all been donated by the veterans’ families.

If you have a veteran’s flag to donate, or would like more information on volunteering, contact Bruce Livingston at 423-0627 or Donald Richardson at 423-0220.
