Palatine Salutes Veterans Day

Those who have died for, and served our country will be honored later today at St. Theresa Church and on Sunday near the Veterans Memorial at Community Park.

CORRECTION: District 15 schools have normal schedules on Monday, November 12. Previously, this article stated class was not in session. Patch regrets the error. 

Veterans will be honored for their sacrifices in two separate events over the next few days.

Later today, St. Theresa's Church, 455 N. Benton Street, will host a Veteran's Day Ceremony starting at 12:45 p.m.  

Veterans of the military will be speaking, and children representing each of the branches of the Armed Forces will be singing to honor those who fought, and died for our country. 

The American Legion also plans to honor our military on Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11. 

The Palatine American Legion Post 690 annual Veterans’ Day Ceremony will begin at noon on Sunday at the Veterans’ Memorial in Community Park located at the intersection of Northwest Highway (Route 14) and East Wood Street. 

The ceremony will feature the Legion’s Color Guard and Rifle Team as well as remarks by leaders of the Legion, the Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion. 

The program will conclude with a rifle salute and the playing of Taps at 12:30 P.M.
