City offices are closed November 11 for Veterans Day; ceremony planned at Recreation Center

City of Taylor offices are closed on Thursday, November 11, in recognition of Veterans Day, a national holiday. Thank you to all veterans who served our country to provide the freedoms we now enjoy.

There will be a memorial gathering planned by Connie Fedel of Taylor Yoga in the Taylor Recreation Center. Participants should meet inside the facility prior to 11 a.m. for 2 1/2 minutes of silence to remember our fallen heroes. Several schools also are marking the day with ceremonies.
