Participants will gather near London Jewelers on Main Street 15 minutes before the start time and then proceed to the Hook Mill green for a brief ceremony. Another ceremony will follow at 11 at the American Legion in Amagansett.

A Veterans Day celebration will take place at the Montauk Playhouse Community Center on Saturday at 11 a.m. There will be a flag-laying ceremony and a wreath-laying ceremony with local Brownie and Boy Scout troops, as well as music, courtesy of a Montauk seventh-grader, Faith Mullaly. Light refreshments will be served outdoors after the ceremony.
