American Legion Remembrance & Veterans Day Event

Dennis Rike - American Legion Post 14
November 3, 2018

The Jay Sadler Project and American Legion Post 14 is organizing the November 11th observance of Remembrance Day & Veterans Day event. This is the 100th anniversary for the observance.
Whether you are visiting Mexico or even making it your home, there are certain traditions you don't want to lose. For many expats and members of American Legion,  Veteran's Day is one of those traditions, as is Remembrance Day (also known as 'Poppy Day' or 'Armistice Day'), a Memorial Day observed in Commonwealth countries since the end of World War I to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

This day is also recognized as a special day for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918.

The MX Navy Zone Color Guard will be performing with their drum and bugle corps.
To honor service members of the U.S. and Canadian armed forces the American Legion and Jay Sadler Project is organizing a Veteran's / Remembrance memorial on November 11th. The event will take place at Parque Hidalgo at 11:00 am. The park is the first park & garage as you enter town near Starbucks. The park is on Calle Peru and Jesus Langarica below the church.

Coffee, Pastry and water will be provided starting at 10:30 provided by Holly Campbell.
