Veterans Day 2017
Veterans Day 2017 officially falls on Saturday, November 11. The Federal and many State and Local Governments are observing this on Friday, to allow for a day off work. Next year, the 100th Anniversary of the signing of the Armistice officially ending World War I will fall on Sunday. Therefore, many official observations next year will take place on Monday, November 12, 2018.
Finally, the rose, appropriately, is a hybrid tea that does well in Albuquerque, ‘Veterans’ Honor.’
