Despite the constant snowfall throughout the day, a crowd of residents and local veterans turned out to take part in the City of Highland Park’s Veterans Day ceremony, Nov. 11 at the Highland Park Public Library.

“Every year I hear somebody say ‘Why can’t we do these in the park?’ Well, today is a good reason why we’re not at the park,” Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering said during the ceremony.
