Veterans Day Ceremony

About 30 minutes before the start of a Veterans Day ceremony Friday, the Harmony Cornet Band struck up its music, filling the social hall at Francis Scott Key Post 11 of the American Legion on Taney Avenue in Frederick with patriotic music and marches.

An annual Veterans Day ceremony is usually at Frederick’s Memorial Park, but Friday’s rainy weather forced it inside, said Kimberly Davis, the post’s 1st vice commander, who served eight years in the U.S. Army as a staff sergeant.
