11-11 Auburn Veterans-Stanovich 1-edit
Hot dogs and hamburgers will be available afterward courtesy of the local Boy Scouts. All veterans are honored, but Stanovich says each year they have different themes.

The event is at the Veteran’s Building in Grass Valley (255 South Auburn Street), doors open around 8:30 with the program starting at 9:45 am. and running about 1 hour. Coffee and donuts are free and the lunch is a five-dollar donation.
Veterans will (also) be honored on the streets of Auburn this morning. The annual Veteran’s Day Parade steps off at 10:45 at the Auburn Chamber of Commerce on Lincoln Way, and will halt at exactly 11:00 am at Central Square for three rifle volleys. ‘Taps’ will be played and doves will be released. There will also be a flyover, weather permitting. Nicholas Burley, a U-S Army soldier who was killed this year while serving in Afghanistan, is being posthumously honored as the Grand Marshal.
