Even though snow blanketed the ground and cold temperatures ran amok, the Oregon community came together to commemorate Veterans Day on the morning of Monday, Nov. 11.

With the help of the Oregon-Brooklyn Legion Post 160 and VFW Post 10272, the village held a ceremony at the World War I monument in Oregon’s downtown.

After the brief ceremony, the community gathered at the Oregon Area Senior Center for a lunch and presentation by David Hosking of the Madison Vet Center.
