MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon will mark Veterans' Day with a 10 a.m. ceremony Wednesday on the plaza of City Hall.
The event honoring the service and sacrifice of the military is being hosted in conjunction with the Central Committee for Veterans Affairs and the Mount Vernon Veterans Service Agency.
In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to the city council chambers.
“We will celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all United States veterans,” said Jonathan Logan, commissioner of the Mount Vernon Veterans Service Agency. “As former military, I know how important this day is to everyone who has served our country, whether in times of peace or war.”
“Those who serve or have served in any branch of the military in service to our country deserves recognition and our thanks for protecting the rights and liberties we enjoy as Americans,” said Mayor Ernest Davis.
City Hall will be closed Wednesday in observance of the holiday.
