Outdoor, drive-up program Columbia American Legion Post 581. The observance will be broadcast on a low-watt radio frequency beginning at 11 a.m. The traditional Veterans Day program inside the post home will not take place because of the current Covid-19 pandemic. A similar program was provided Memorial Day.

 

Those attending will be asked to remain in their parked vehicles and tune to designated radio frequency 106.9-FM. The entire 30-minute program will be broadcast through the radio tuned to that frequency. The broadcast will only be heard within the immediate area surrounding the post home.

 

Presentations will be led by Commander Greg Smith who will serve as master of ceremonies.  Recorded patriotic music will be provided.  The Legion Honor Guard will present the colors.

 

Sons of the American Legion Squadron 581 will assist in directing vehicles in the parking lot. Those wishing to attend are asked to arrive early to allow for orderly parking. The Legion Hall will be closed and no rest room access or food and beverage service will be available. All applicable social distancing requirements will be observed.
