At 11 a.m. on Sunday, November 11, Harford County Executive Barry Glassman will lay a wreath at the World War I memorial at Tydings Park in Havre de Grace, joining Mayor Bill Martin and other local officials in remembrance of the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, organized by the Joseph L. Davis American Legion Post 47.
Encouraging all Harford County citizens to join in a moment of silence, County Executive Glassman today issued the following statement:
“From the American Revolution to the present, Harford County citizens have answered the call to defend our nation, and World War I was no exception. In honor of the 47 local citizens who gave their lives, and all World War I veterans who fought for our freedoms, Harford County will join Gov. Hogan, the state, and the nation in the tolling of bells for the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day at 11 a.m. on November 11, 2018. At that time, I have asked our volunteer fire companies to sound their sirens and I invite all citizens to take a moment, wherever they may be, to remember the great sacrifice of these true American heroes.”
