A Veterans Day ceremony is planned for Sunday, November 11 at the Pettis County Courthouse.

The ceremony will begin at 11:00 in the morning on the courthouse lawn.

November 11, 2018 also marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice agreement that officially ended World War I. To honor the anniversary, there will be a nationwide “Bells of Peace: A World War One Remembrance” event to be held during the Veterans Day ceremony.

A Chili and Ham & Bean dinner will follow the ceremony at the VFW, located at 121 S. Ohio Ave. A service officer will also be available to answer questions about benefits and to help sign-up new members.
