MONROE — Veterans from all wars including peace time service are invited to celebrate Veterans Day at 11 a.m. Monday, November 11, on the Stepney Green with American Legion posts from Monroe and Easton.

The public is encouraged to attend and acknowledge the veterans’ contributions and sacrifices.

Following the ceremony, all veterans and their spouses are invited to attend the annual and traditional luncheon, hosted by the Girl Scouts of Easton, in the Notre Dame Church, 655 Morehouse Rd.

The Save Our Stepney Task Force will place thirteen American flags on the green to commemorate its Flags Over Stepney program.

In addition to the American flags, a flag will be flown for each branch of the United States armed services.

The task force would like to thank all of the sponsors of this year’s program for their support.
