LEWISTON – Two Veterans Day ceremonies, sponsored by the L and A Veterans Council, will take place on Friday, Nov. 11.

The first will be held at 10 a.m. at the Lewiston Armory, opening with the National Anthem. An Invocation will be followed by talks by Lewiston Mayor Lionel Guay and Auburn Mayor Normand Guay.

A Pass In Review will take place by the military, veterans, fraternal and youth organizations. State Sen. Margaret Rotundo will speak, and the Just Us entertainers, the combined Lewiston and Edward Little High School bands and the Lewiston High School Chorus will present a musical program.

The second ceremony will be held at the Veterans Memorial Park on Main Street starting at 1:30 p.m. with the changing of the flags. A new American flag was donated by Sen. Susan Collins, which had been flown on the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
