Bank of Luxemburg: The Location for a New Veteran's Day Memorial

Local veterans, residents, business owners, board members, Luxemburg-Casco High School community, problem solving students, and faculty gathered outside Bank of Luxemburg’s main branch on Wednesday, November 11, in honor of Veteran’s Day. It was the first gathering of this sort since last year’s dedication of Veteran’s Memorial Park, which is located directly in front of Bank of Luxemburg and marked by five monuments. The memorial program included a welcome message, prayer, reflection speech, riffle guard, the playing of taps, and ended with a moment of silence. Following the service, Luxemburg-Casco High School students relived history as they spoke with the veterans about the meaning of Veteran’s Day and listened to them tell stories of war. Several generations reflected together on the importance of the special day. Bank of Luxemburg appreciates all those who serve in the military and armed forces and is proud to be the site for this new tradition, as the Veteran’s Day Memorial service hopefully becomes an annual event.
