Left: There will be Veterans Day ceremony tomorrow, Tuesday, November 11 at 11 am at the Northfield Area Veterans Memorial in Riverside Park.

Right: The Carleton College exhibition Winter of the World: Remembering the Great War ends tomorrow (exhibition in Gould Library). There’s an all-day remembrance vigil at Skinner Memorial Chapel from 9-5.

And for the grammar police out there, the Wikipedia entry for Veterans Day says:

The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran’s Day or Veterans’ Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.

    I love that Hwy 3 memorial. It’s a great tribute to those who gave so we can live like we do.

    The new river area’s super, too. Isn’t Northfield looking great! What a beautiful town.

    Nice flyer. The Great War, almost 100 years since we joined! Wow. 2017 will be a big year for us.
