The East Hampton Fire Department has organized a Veterans Day observance to be held on the Hook Mill Memorial Green on Wednesday at 10 a.m. Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Everit Albert Herter Post 550 and the East Hampton American Legion Post 419 will take part.

East Hampton Fire Chief Gerard Turza Jr. said the public would be welcomed, but cautioned that face coverings and social distancing will be required.

Sag Harbor will also hold a Veterans Day parade, starting at the Civil War monument at the corner of Main and Madison Streets at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. Veterans can muster at 9:45 a.m. at the American Legion if they like, and after the parade there will be a short ceremony also at the Legion. Face masks are required.

The Montauk Playhouse Community Center will hold a virtual flag-raising ceremony on Wednesday beginning at 10 a.m. The ceremony will be on the center's website, as well as on its Facebook and Instagram pages.

Among other nods to veterans on Wednesday, the Southampton Publick House at 62 Job's Lane will offer vets 20 percent discounts on their lunch and dinner bills on Wednesday, and the East Hampton and Montauk I.G.A. stores will offer 10 percent off to all active or retired military members.
