A Veterans Day observance was held early last Thursday morning in Williston’s Veterans Park for the first time in several years. Organized by the Rotary Club of Williston-Richmond, the event was kicked off by Rotary president Lesley Murray. Speakers included selectboard chair Terry Macaig; town manager Erik Wells; Williston Federated Church pastor Paul Eyer; and veteran Armand Fournier, who organized the event. Charlie Magill, also a veteran, delivered a roll call of Williston veterans living and deceased who are honored in the park.
