Patriotic Days

MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community.

ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War I. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all Veterans. It has been in Fluvanna.  Annually the Post sponsors the Veterans Day ceremony at the intersection of routes 6 &15 in the community of Dixie. An important tradition was established when the Post led in the memorial exercises at 11 o'clock on the morning of November 11, marking the exact hour of the cessation of hostility on the war fronts.
