UPDATE, Wednesday Nov. 9:

We are saddened to announce that we will have to cancel the Veterans Day Ceremony scheduled for Friday.

The latest weather reports indicate that we’ll have the highest likelihood of precipitation and some of the heaviest rains right at the time of our planned event.

For the safety of the staff and attendees, we’ll need to cancel the outdoor, public event.

Per our severe weather plan, we’ll be having a closed event in the atrium of Building 47 which will be recorded and shared via the Mayor’s YouTube Channel at 2 p.m. and streamed live for our Community Living Center Veterans.
