Lyme Veteran’s Memorial Committee Hosts Veteran’s Day Ceremony at 11am Today; All Welcome

The Lyme Veteran’s Memorial Committee is proud to present a Veteran’s Day Ceremony commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice Day signifying the end of World War I and honoring all those from Lyme, who served during that war and all that have served since or are currently in uniform in the US Armed Forces.

Twenty-eight residents of Lyme served in uniform during the First World War — a significant number considering the very small size of the town.

The event will start at the 11 a.m., the exact time the Armistice was signed, and will include Lyme’s First Selectman Steve Mattson and New York University’s Rolf Wolfswinkel, Modern History Professor, World War I authority, and a resident of Lyme.

The outdoor Ceremony will be on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. at the Lyme Veteran’s Memorial next to Lyme Town Hall at 480 Hamburg Rd. (Rte. 156). All are welcome.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Meeting Hall at Lyme Town Hall at the same address.
