Each November, the Sisters community - led by its youth - honor local veterans of the armed services. All local veterans, their families, and the public at large are invited to attend the observances.

This year, on Friday, November 9, from 1:55 to 3 p.m., Sisters Middle School and Sisters High School will join in honoring veterans in an assembly at the Sisters High School auditorium.

Afterwards, there will be a reception in the lecture drama room for conversation and photo sharing, accompanied by homemade goodies and coffee.

On Tuesday, November 13, Sisters Elementary School will host a light breakfast in the gym at 7:45 a.m., followed by an assembly program at 8:15 a.m. in the SES Commons. The program will end at 9 a.m.

Veterans Day, which falls on a Sunday this year, is an official U.S. holiday recognizing all who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The date coincides with Armistice Day, where nations mark the formal end of World War I on November 11, 1918. This year marks the centenary of that event (see related commentary, page 18).

The United States changed the observance from Armistice Day to Veterans Day in 1954, in the wake of the Second World War and the Korean War.
