A Historical Veterans Day

On Monday, November 11th, Veterans Day, the Lindenhurst Historical Society rededicated the WWI Monument, located on Monument Plaza at the crossroads of Wellwood and Hoffman Avenues.  The event featured a parade and reenactment of the 1919 dedication ceremony, along with a service to honor and remember all of our Veterans, led by the United Veterans Council.

Mayor Michael Lavorata thanked Village Historian, Anna Jaeger, for her research and work in planning the historical event, saying “It was a wonderful community event to mark the 100th Anniversary of the WWI Monument, and to honor all the men and women who have served our country so bravely and selflessly.”
