When and Where are Veterans Day Ceremonies?
Veterans Day Ceremonies in Danvers will happen on Monday, Nov. 12.
The Danvers Veterans Council will conduct Veterans Day Ceremonies on Monday, Nov. 12 at the Danvers Senior Center.
The ceremonies will start at precisely 10:58 a.m. with a two minute drum roll followed by a gun salute by the Danvers Alarm List. The public is invited to attend the ceremonies honoring all veterans who served.
The guest speaker will be Kristine Babcock, a 10-year veteran of the U.S. Navy. It is appropriate, organizers say, that the guest speaker is a female during the 100th anniversary year of the Girl Scouts of America. She served during the Panama and early Gulf War eras, much of the time at Naval Air Station, Keflavik, Iceland.
The program will also include an invocation offered by Rev. Kevin Smith of the Maple Street Congregational Church, wreath placement by Danvers Girl and Boy Scouts, music provided by Danvers High School Chamber Singers and Danvers Girl Scouts, Taps and drum roll by high school band members and bagpipe music by Robert Haskell.
Following the service, the public is invited to place small American flags in the memorial wreath to honor a veteran who was part of their lives.
