The Davis Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949 and the Davis Cemetery District will host its annual Veterans Day ceremony at 11 a.m. Saturday, November 11th, at the Davis Cemetery & Arboretum, 820 Pole Line Road.

There will be a musical prelude by the Davis Brass Ensemble at 10:30 am. The ceremony will include a Posting of the Colors by UC Davis Army ROTC, music by the Davis High Madrigal Choir, a reading by Davis Poet Laureate Dr. Andy Jones, and our featured speaker will be World War II Veteran Gerome “Gerry” Suran.

Davis Boy Scouts , Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts will place the flags on the graves of veterans early that morning and pick them up that evening.

We will be in need of volunteers for setting up, aid in the handing out of programs and the removal of flags later in the afternoon. Please contact cemcod@dcn.org if you would like to help.
