The annual Fountain Valley Veterans Day ceremony for the community is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11 at Veterans Park, next to the FV Library (Los Alamos Street, just south of Slater Avenue). Veterans and those on active duty or home on leave are encouraged to attend as well so those there can recognize them for their service.
The event is sponsored by VFW Post 5997 and assisted this year again by our local Girl Scout Troop.
Seating is provided for about 190 people, but tend those with a beach chair or lawn chair are encouraged to bring one if you have one.
The Girl Scouts will provide refreshments after the event, as well as patriotic learning activities for attending children.
