On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 2018 people worldwide will mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, pausing to recognize those who sacrificed and those who will sacrifice in the defense of freedom and democracy.
Join us at Stonehenge Memorial as we commemorate this special anniversary. The event will begin with World War I era music and poetry, followed by a brief history of the Stonehenge and the 14 service members memorialized there. There will be speeches, a wreath laying, National Salute, taps, and planting of red poppies. A reception at Maryhill Museum of Art will follow the ceremonies. Veterans are encouraged to wear their medals and decorations to the ceremony; the museum will offer free admission to all who attend the event at Stonehenge on November 11. Measures will be in place in the event of cold or wet weather.
