Paris Junior College will hold its annual Veterans Day Ceremony at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11 in the DeShong Chapel and the nearby Veterans Memorial. Each year the college holds a ceremony to mark the day and honor PJC students lost to war.
During the ceremony, “In Flander’s Field,” family remembrances are shared, and the names of students who lost their lives in World War II, Korea and Vietnam are read as the bells in the DeShong Chapel carillon toll. Afterward, veterans present a wreath at the PJC war memorial followed by a playing of “Taps.”
