Veterans Day 2020

Alena Naiden/News-Miner

Community members ring bells at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 2020, in honor of Armistice Day. The celebration was organized by the Alaska Peace Center.

Bell ringing has been a traditional way of celebrating Armistice Day since the signing of the armistice that ended WWI on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.

Bring a bell and join in this tradition of ringing bells to honor our veterans and promote peace with the Veterans for Peace and Alaska Peace Center.

The bell ringing will occur at 11 a.m. Nov. 11 at Veteran's Memorial Park, 700 Cushman St., in Fairbanks. Masks and social distancing are recommended, and extra bells will be provided for those who do not have one.
