Observing Veterans Day

The United States will observe Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11, 2020. The date commemorates all veterans living and deceased who bravely fought for our nation’s freedoms. Originally known as Armistice Day when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1919 to acknowledge the agreement between the Allies and Germany that ended World War I one year earlier, it became a federal holiday in 1938. The name was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 to better reflect the fact that it honors all military veterans, not just those who served in the First World War.

The Town of Bedford will be closed on Wednesday November 11 in observance of Veterans Day.

The Town will re-open for business on Thursday November 12 at 8:30am.
