CONCORD -- The Hillcrest Park Veterans Day event Sunday has been canceled, but there will be a ceremony at Newhall Park.

The Disabled Veterans Service Association's program is at 11 a.m. Nov. 11, at the Concord Vietnam Memorial, the grove of trees atop Newhall Park, off Clayton Road and Wharton Way.

Ray Acosta, Disabled American Veterans National Service Officer and past state commander, will deliver the speech, and the names of the service personnel listed on the memorial plaque will be recited at the conclusion of the service.

Conflicting events precluded participation by VFW Post 1525 and Mt. Diablo Chapter 264 of the Korean War Veterans Association, and others at the Hillcrest program.
