Veterans Day ceremonies in Blair

The annual Veterans Day ceremony scheduled to be held at Veterans Tribute Plaza was moved into the Blair American Legion hall due to the cold and blustery weather.

Arbor Park also commemorated the day and the hour with a school assembly.  Held in the gymnasium.  That event also originally was scheduled to be held around the flag pole outside, but was moved to the gym due to the weather conditions.
