Local chapters of Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, host ceremonies

On Saturday, Nov. 11, two local chapters of the Veterans of Foreign Wars hosted ceremonies to honor soldiers and their service to their country.

Despite rainy, cold weather, both events drew crowds of dozens to the event to honor veterans in Columbia County, both past and present.

The Scappoose VFW Post 4362 held a ceremony at Heritage Par. The ceremony was concluded with a flyover provided by Biplanes Northwest.
