All events begin at 10:00 am CST

Veterans For Peace will conduct its yearly Reclaim Armistice Day remembrance service honoring the Armistice which was signed on November 11, 1918 which was to be the war to end all wars. This year we will gather at the World War 1 Victory Memorial Monument on Victory Memorial Drive. For those up for a 1 mile walk the event begins at 10:00 am. We will walk from 33rd & Xerxes Ave N along Victory Memorial Drive to the Memorial at 45th & York Av N.  At 10:30 the program will begin at the flagpole and will include words from president Dave Logsdon and Steve McKeown plus music from flutist Darren Thompson who has been nominated for a Native American Music Award. We will have our Bell Ringing at 11 AM followed by Native flutist Darren Thompson playing taps.

This year following our traditional Bell ringing event, Veterans for Peace National is reclaiming Armistice Day as a day to strive to truly end war and address the climate crisis with bold direct action in at least a dozen cities across the US. For Chapter 27 we will gather in front of Amy Klobuchar’s office at 1:00 pm at 1200 Washington Ave So, Mpls, MN and hand deliver a statement listing items we would like her to address related to Militarism and the Climate. We will hold our our banners and signs calling attention to the U.S. Militaries contribution to the Climate Crisis. This is also part of a National Effort by VFP’s “Stop the War Save the Climate” and Climate Crisis and Militarism working groups. Please bring your concern and energy to this event.
