Nov. 10, 2018 — Local veterans were recognized Thursday morning at an assembly at Siuslaw High School. The veterans were greeted with a standing ovation and a warm round of applause from the students and faculty in attendance. During the assembly, the gathered veterans shared memories from their time of service.
The ceremony was intentionally held prior to Veterans Day, which will be celebrated tomorrow.
Florence will hold its customary Veterans Day Parade that afternoon at 1 p.m. The parade route will lead down to Bay Street, culminating at the Veterans Memorial Park, where the Florence-Siuslaw Lions Club will be hosting a free hot dog lunch.
