Southampton Village's annual Veterans Day parade is this Sunday, and parade-goers should take note of the start time.
Normally, the parade and ceremony is at 11 a.m., to commemorate the signing of the armistice that ended hostilities in World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
But, because Veterans Day falls on a Sunday this year and many will be in church in the morning, it was moved to 2 p.m., Mayor Mark Epley said.
The parade is organized by the Southampton Village Commission on Veterans Patriotic Events, whose longtime chairman Bill Frankenbach died last year. This will be the first Veterans Day ceremony under new chairman Robert Grisnik.
Veterans will parade down Jobs Lane to the Southampton Cultural Center for the ceremony.
