Rockville officials and residents will observe Veterans Day Monday with a ceremony that begins at 11 a.m. at Veterans Park. The American Legion Post 86 will lead a wreath-laying ceremony and present a military salute.
A reception will follow the ceremony at the American Legion Post 86 located at 2013 Veirs Mill Road. Parking is available at Sandy Spring Bank, 611 Rockville Pike.
Veterans Park is located on a triangle of land between Route 355 (Rockville Pike) and Veirs Mill Road. Sometime in the 1970s the park was known as the Francis Scott Key Memorial Park. The park was permanently rededicated as Veterans Park in 1988.
Everyone is welcome at the ceremony and reception.
