Veterans Day Ceremony November 11, 2022 at 11:00 AM

All veterans, their families and friends, and all area residents are invited to attend the annual Veterans Day ceremony on Friday, November 11 in the Ballroom of the Nineteenth Century building (178 Forest Ave., Oak Park, IL). The ceremony begins at 11:00 a.m. 

Illinois Senate President Don Harmon and Village President Vicki Scaman will give welcoming remarks.  Officers from the Oak Park Police will post the Colors.  The History Singers will lead us in patriotic singing. Our bugler will play "Taps" as wreaths are laid.  The remarks this year will examine the origins and meaning of Veterans Day and will discuss the WWI and WWII origins of Irving Berlin's iconic patriotic hymn, "God Bless America." More broadly, the ceremony will recognize and honor all of our veterans who have served our country in wartime and in peace, especially those who have lost their lives in service to country. 

If you cannot attend in person, send an email to Brian Flora at and he will send you the Zoom Meeting ID and Passcode.
