Veterans Day Ceremony

November 11 @ 1:30 pm 2:00 pm

Please join Congressman Conor Lamb, members of Carnegie American Legion Post 82, members of the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves, elected officials, friends and colleagues at 1:30 pm on Veterans Day, Friday November 11.   We are delighted that sixth graders from Carnegie Elementary school are participating in the program with brief poetry readings.  The short, moving ceremony ends with a bugler playing Taps.

When we developed Library Park, a flagpole opposite the Library entrance became an essential part of the design.  Since November 2017, a Veterans Day ceremony has become tradition at the Library & Music Hall.

As home to the Captain Thomas Espy Post No. 153 of the Grand Army of the Republic, Veterans Day has a special resonance at the Carnegie Carnegie.  Founded in 1866 for veterans of the Union Armed Service, the G.A.R. laid the foundation for all veterans’ organizations to come. The Espy Post has been documented as the most intact G.A.R. post in the country.

The ceremony will be followed a coffee and cookies reception in the Lincoln Gallery.  The Captain Thomas Espy Post will be open from 12:30 until 3:00.

The ceremony takes place rain or shine.
