Local 2019 Veterans Day Events

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

Following are the local scheduled events honoring Veterans of which we are aware. For the second year in a row, nothing has been scheduled for Mount Pocono. (Apparently the Interim Mayor is a little butthurt over us having pointed out that no ceremonies have been scheduled for Mount Pocono for two years running, in a break from long standing tradition. For he has lifted our graphic and posted all over his vanity pages that the "official" Mount Pocono proceedings took place outside of Mount Pocono. No member of hte community was informed. No member of Council invited. No mention on the "official" website. And no entry on the "official" calendar. The Interim Mayor just can't ever be trusted to tell the truth.)
