Shelton to honor veterans at 10:30 a.m. ceremony Monday

Shelton’s annual Veterans Day ceremony will take place Monday, Nov. 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the veterans monuments at Veterans Memorial Park (the Riverwalk). The event is open to the public.

The starting time was inaccurately listed as 11 a.m. in the newspaper this week. We regret the error and any confusion it may have caused.

'DAR and Donuts'

The local Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter has again teamed up with the Dunkin’ Donuts on Howe Avenue for the fifth annual “DAR and Donuts” before and after the 10:30 a.m. Veterans Day ceremony. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided to veterans and their families.

The initiative is being coordinated by Juliana Lavitola, local DAR Veterans Services Committee chairman, and Mark Dymerski, franchise owner of the Dunkin’ Donuts in downtown Shelton.

“Over the years, it has become a tradition, and everyone looks forward to getting together and enjoying a cup of coffee and a Munchkin,” according to DAR officials.
