We are grateful for our Veterans. Our friendly neighbors over in Scott Valley have a parade to honor Veterans. The whole nation honors the veterans on Veterans Day 2018 Sunday, November 11th, and designated as a Federal Holiday on Monday, November 12th, 2018.
As a federal holiday Veterans Day is typically observed on November 11th every year. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated as the Federal holiday, and if it occurs on a Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be designated. When the Federal holiday and November 11th dates are different often times Veterans Day activities will take place on both days and still many activities are often scheduled the weekend leading up to Veterans Day even if both dates match.
This year marks the Centennial Commemoration of the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. The theme for the 2018 Veterans Day Poster is: “The War to End All Wars” and features a poppy and barbed wire.
To the Attention of ALL Veterans along the Klamath River: You are appreciated and are invited to the Happy Camp Elementary School dinner at 5 o’clock Saturday where we will be proudly be serving a wonderful dinner and get together! Don’t forget, it is Saturday at the Happy Camp Elementary School, thanks to Amber Ogborn.
