The City of Wood River Veterans Day ceremony has been cancelled. It was to be held Tuesday afternoon, but based on the expected weather conditions, the decision was made to pull the plug, according to Mayor Fred Ufert.

He says the ceremony has been rescheduled for Memorial Day 2015. It is held at the city’s Veterans Memorial, located on city property in Central Park near the Roundhouse. Nearly 70 Wood River residents died while serving their country, going back to the Civil War, but this memorial only honors those going back to 1908, the year the city was incorporated.
