LYNNFIELD — The Lynnfield Veterans’ Day celebration will take place on Friday, Nov. 11 on the Lynnfield common. The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m., and will last approximately 30 minutes. All Lynnfield veterans and residents are invited and encouraged to attend.

“Veterans’ Day is a celebration of the brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting us. It is incumbent upon us to spend some time showing our appreciation. This year’s ceremony is dedicated to one of Lynnfield’s favorite veterans, Anthony (Tony) Grasso, who passed away in September,” said Lynnfield Veterans’ Services Officer Bruce Siegel.

In the event of inclement weather, the celebration will occur on the same date and time inside the Meeting House. Brunch will be served upon the conclusion of the ceremony.

Those who are interested in making donations to local veterans, Lynnfield’s own American Legion Post 131 will be on site and donations may be made to them after the ceremony. Refer any questions to Siegel at the Veterans’ Services office at Town Hall at 781-334-9440.
