PARIS – The American Legion Post 72 will hold a Veterans Day program at the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School, replacing the usual parade, on Saturday, Nov. 11.

It will circumvent weather problems that could minimize crowd or marcher participation. The program will begin at 10 a.m., with the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School band providing music and the Maine National Guard presenting the colors.

The speaker will be Dale Piirainen, LCDR, U.S. Navy, retired. All residents of the Oxford Hills are invited to attend the ceremony in honor of all veterans.

Coffee and doughnuts will be provided following the program. For more information, contact Bill Damon, Post 72 Americanism officer and chairman of the Veterans Day Committee, at 743-6764 or by mail at PO Box 161, Norway ME 04268.
