The Andover Townsman

---- — On Sunday, Nov. 11 the Town of Andover will be memorializing Veterans Day at West Parish Cemetery at 10 a.m., Spring Grove Cemetery at 11 a.m. and Ballardvale Green at noon.

At Spring Grove Cemetery, the town will be dedicating two Veterans’ Memorials. The two memorials are to dedicate the existing Spring Grove Veterans Burial Lot and to dedicate the future Spring Grove Veterans Burial Lot.

At Ballardvale Green, the “Heroes Among Us Book – Book IV” - spot-lighting living WWII Andover Veterans - will be presented to the veterans in that book.

The brief ceremonies will be followed by a luncheon at 1 p.m. at Masonic Temple on High Street.

The Veterans Day Program will be held even if there is inclement weather. If there is inclement weather (moderate to heavy rain) a brief ceremony will be held at Elm Green at noon, followed indoors at the Masonic Temple.
