Bob Tulipani, a U.S. Army veteran and retired teacher who led Ridgefield’s American Legion Post 78 for 18 years, will be the featured speaker at Ridgefield’s Veterans Day ceremonies Sunday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. at the Lounsbury House on Main Street. “The American Legion along with the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Marine Corps League Detachment will hold a ceremony to honor not only Ridgefield’s veterans, but all of America’s 21,800,000 veterans,” said American Legion Commander George Besse.

The ceremony, which will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, will include patriotic songs sung by Evelyn Carr, with short readings by veterans and local officials. Cub Scout Pack 74 will assist in the ceremony by laying a wreath on the memorial monument, followed by Military Honors with the playing of Taps.
