Sunday is Veterans Day, a time to honor veterans for their service and sacrifice.

Ahead of that day, though, several groups will come together at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, for an American Flag retirement ceremony at Woodland Veterans Park in Shawnee.

The event is aimed at teaching youth about the proper way to retire an American Flag and will include veterans service groups, students and well as those involved in groups such as Boy Scouts.

To observe Veterans Day, a community ceremony is also being planned 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 12 at the Veterans Memorial in Woodland Veterans Park.
