Franklin Veterans Day 2020

The Glen at Park Circle, a beautiful WI condominium community

You guessed it.


For the first time in 11 years, there won’t be any veterans at Franklin Public Library on Veteran’s Day. However, the city will still honor veterans and the Veteran’s Memorial with a virtual program to be aired by the library. It will be broadcast on Veteran’s Day at 11 a.m., November 11th on Franklin Public Library’s YouTube channel: 

This year will commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the end of World War I,. Members of AMVETS Post 60 are hosting the program.

The program will include the following speakers: Steve Olson, Mayor, City of Franklin; Ann Peru Knabe, Colonel, USAF; and Alan Willis, Commander, AMVETS Post 60.

The “Quilts of Honor” will also present a number of quilts to veterans in recognition of their service.  A POW/MIA presentation is planned along with a rifle salute and taps. 

This will be the eleventh year the program has been held.  It honors all veterans.  It also acknowledges the city’s Veteran’s Memorial established by Derek McElroy as his Eagle Scout project.
