Piedmont to Honor World War I Veterans and Commemorate Armistice Day – November 11

November 11, 2018 marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I, the “war to end all wars.”

The Alameda/Piedmont/Oakland Chapter 36 of the Blue Star Mothers along with other community members will place a wreath on Piedmont’s World War I Memorial at Veterans Hall, 401 Highland Avenue, in Piedmont. The short ceremony will take place on:

Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.

The Memorial honors seven young men from Piedmont who gave their lives in the War. It is one of thousands of similar community and civic memorials across Europe, the UK, Canada and Australia. It is altogether fitting that we, as a community, honor them, and the cause for which they fought, on this 100th anniversary day.

Any and all community members, including PHS students, are invited to attend. Dress is casual.
