Sunday marked the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day, with the treaty that brought the end to the Great War, World War I, signed at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, 1918.
It’s the reason Veterans Day is held on Nov. 11 and ceremonies occurred across the North Fork to commemorate the holiday.
There was a heavy focus on remembering the end of World War I at each of the ceremonies.
