In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. – Titus 2:7-8

Strength Needed: Samantha Kelly is looking to hire some (4ish) strong and careful high school or college aged people to assist in moving a baby grand piano from one side of Altoona to the other this Sunday, November 14th, after Bible class at around 11:30 am. It should take about two hours or less. The only steps it needs to go up and down are a few outdoor steps, so it shouldn’t be too difficult if there are four people. $40/person for time and muscles! Contact Samantha by text or phone call: 715-544-5846.

 

Entrance Closed!: The south doors are closed for the roofing project today. We must use the north or center entrances.

Today is Veteran’s Day

What does Veterans Day celebrate? Veterans Day is held in honor of all those who served in the United States Armed Forces. This is different from Memorial Day which honors those who died while serving.

When is Veterans Day celebrated? November 11th or the nearest workday. The World War I armistice was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. That should help you to remember the date that Veterans Day is observed.

Who celebrates this day? Veterans Day is a federal holiday in the United States. All non-essential government agencies and many schools are closed for the day. Many other countries celebrate the day as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day as November 11th marked the end of World War I.

What do people do to celebrate? There are many parades and services throughout the country that honor veterans. The National Ceremony is held each year at Arlington National Cemetery where the president gives a speech and veterans are honored. Most major cities such as New York City, San Diego, and Dallas have a Veterans Day parade. At many events, such as church services and football games, veterans will be asked to stand and then the crowd will honor them with applause. Many people fly a US flag on this day to show their patriotism and support for the armed services. At 11am a moment of silence is observed to remember those who served. If you see a veteran or soldier on Veterans Day, be sure to thank them personally for their service to our country.

History of Veterans Day It was at 11:00 am on November 11, 1918 that a temporary peace, or armistice, was signed and the fighting during World War I came to an end. A year later President Woodrow Wilson announced that November 11th would be called Armistice Day in the United States. In 1938 Armistice Day became a national federal holiday. It was a day dedicated to world peace and held in honor of the veterans of World War I. In 1954 Congress decided to change the day to Veteran’s Day. This was because they wanted to honor the veterans of all wars including World War II and the Korean War. There were a few more changes to the day. In 1968 the day was moved to the fourth Monday of November. However, it was later changed back to November 11th in 1978 by President Gerald Ford.
