Norwood Veterans' Day Schedule of Festivities
From the Norwood Veterans' Day Committee.
On September 20, 1975, President Ford signed into law, legislation that returned Veterans’ Day observations to November 11, each year. This year, November 11, 2012, is a Sunday.
In order to be respectful to the congregations surrounding VFW Square (Town Common), and in order to not be disruptive to their services on a Sunday morning, the Norwood American Legion requested permission from the Board of Selectmen to hold the Veterans’ Day Parade and observances on Sunday, November 11, 2012, with the following changes:
11:00 a.m. - Military Mass at Saint Catherine of Siena Church.
12:30 p.m. – Parade from Balch School. Washington Street to the Dempsey Gazebo on VFW Square.
1:00 p.m. – Ceremonies on the Common.
