Unlike previous years, such as last year’s full day of ceremonies and events, Glendale will have a smaller Veterans Day celebration, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mayor Jerry Weiers and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce’s Military and Veterans Affairs Committee will honor active military and veterans with a brief flag-raising ceremony at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11.

The event will take place in the Veterans Memorial Garden at Glendale Main Library.

Social distancing and mask wearing will be required.

Additionally, for those avoiding crowds, the ceremony will be live on the city’s and chamber’s Facebook pages.
