Claremont’s official Veterans Day remembrance, held at 11:00 on the 11th hour of the 11th month, featured comments by Mayor Larry Schroeder, a speech by American Legion Post 78 vice Commander Allen Rodriguez and playing of “Taps” by bugler Steve Collins. The Boy Scouts also participated in the official celebration by posting the American Flag. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
