Veterans Day observed in Ligonier

A nice crowd gathered on the Diamond this morning for the observance of Veterans Day, conducted by the local VFW and American Legion Posts and their Auxiliary units. The Ligonier Valley Marching Band also participated, along with LVHS Air Force Jr. ROTC cadets, the local Boy Scouts, and lots of veterans. Mayor Ormond "Butch" Bellas delivered a proclamation. Only glitch was the wireless microphone kept failing, so the crowd at times could hear little but the traffic rumbling by.
