Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony in Londonderry

Nov 11, 2011 No Comments by

Londonderry will host a Veterans Day Parade this Saturday, November 12, 2011, at 10 AM. The parade will start at the Londonderry High School and march to the historic Londonderry Common, where a special ceremony will be held in honor of all those who have served.

Veterans Day began as a way to commemorate those who fought in World War I. Originally called Armistice Day, the holiday was established when a temporary cessation of hostilities between the Allied Nations and Germany went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11the day of the 11th month in 1918. Over time, the holiday changed to honor all veterans of all wars, not just World War I. To learn more about the history of the holiday, click here.
