The president announced that attendance for meetings will be at 50% of room capacity and masks are encouraged. Disposable masks will be made available.

The Accent was given by Kadda Schale who reported on facts regarding Veterans Day. Originally called Armistice Day, it was for commemorating the end of World War I. In 1954, after World War II and the Korean War, Veterans service organizations asked Congress to change the wording from “armistice” to “veterans” so the day would honor American veterans of all wars. Veterans Day honors all of those who have served the country in war or peace. The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year at 11 a.m. November 11 at Arlington National Cemetery.
