Cloverdale American Legion to host Veterans Day dinner

Saturday, November 3, 2012

In honor of Veterans Day the Cloverdale American Legion post 281 will be hosting a free dinner those who are active military, veteran and their immediate family on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 5:30 p.m.

"The Great War" officially ended on June 28, 1918, however fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice began on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

In November of 1919, President Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day and it has been followed ever since.

The First National Bank of Cloverdale is offering the free meal, which will be prepared by the Post 281 Auxiliary.

All veterans or those on active duty are asked to stop by Post 281 in Cloverdale for dinner.
