The Price City Peace Gardens were filled with members of the community on Monday morning as the annual Veterans Day ceremony commenced. Led by David Jelin, American Legion Post #3 Commander, the day began with the Pledge of Allegiance and was followed by the National Anthem, sang by Carbon High Choral Director Arthella Williams.
Jelin took time to speak on being a veteran and all those who have served, are currently serving and will serve in the future. A moment of silence was held for those that have passed or went missing in action. He then welcomed others to the stage to speak on what it means to be a veteran, give facts about the American flag and more.
A three-shot volley then took place. Jelin welcomed all that were in attendance to stay and chat with a veteran about their stories while enjoying delicious food provided by Dominion Energy. This food was free for veterans and $5 for citizens.
Funds raised from the lunch will help fund scholarships for local veterans at USU Eastern.
