ELEVENTH HOUR-ELEVENTH DAY-ELEVENTH MONTH
In keeping with the decades-long practice of remembering the armistice which ended the 1914-1918 Great War (now termed the First World War and World War I), there will be a wreath laying ceremony at 11 a.m. Sunday at the World War Memorial at Updike Park in Wickford Village to mark the hour, day, and month of the cessation of hostilities.
In case of inclement weather, the event planned for Updike Park will still go forward at 11 a.m. on Sunday. The ceremonies planned for the Town Hall and Veterans Memorial Park will start at 11 a.m. on Monday.
