At 11am on November 11 members of City Council, city staff and other members of the community will gather at the Bay Area Veterans Memorial located on Main Street to “Honor Our Veterans”. Veterans Day is a federal holiday held annually on November 11 for honoring all military veterans. It coincides with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day which marks the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. Armistice Day was renamed to Veterans Day in 1954.
