Tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of signing the armistice that ended the fighting of World War I. Until 1954, November 11 was known in the United States as Armistice Day not Veterans Day, as it is called today. In Canada and other Commonwealth countries, November 11 is known as Remembrance Day.
Despite tomorrow being a significant centennial, the observance of Veterans Day in Hudson will be as it always is. The ceremony will begin at Seventh Street Park at 10:15 a.m., followed by a parade down Warren Street to the courthouse, where there will be speeches and readings, laying of wreaths, band music, and an artillery salute.
