A special tribute is planned for Saturday, Nov. 11 to honor the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the United States armed forces. A “Veterans Day Tribute” celebration will begin at 9:30 aM with a parade along Osceola Street, followed by a tribute program at Clermont’s Highlander Pavilion at Waterfront Park at 11 am.  
Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 because the armistice that ended World War I took effect on the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.”  

“The purpose of the Veteran’s Day tribute is to honor the men and women who have served our nation to ensure our ongoing freedom and security.
