Ottawa’s Veterans Day ceremony will be a little different this year. Instead of having it in Washington Park, it’ll be at the VFW building on LaSalle St. Ottawa Memorial Association President Katie Troccoli says that’s because of the cold weather forecast for the day. The program will run from 10:15am to 11am Monday, November 11.
Later that day, the Vietnam Veterans of LaSalle County will hold a rededication ceremony for the Vietnam War Memorial at LaSalle St. and Woodward Memorial Dr. It’s been refurbished. The event will be at 5pm.
