On November 11, our community will gather to honor its U.S. military veterans, as we have done in some form or another since 1919. Originally conceived as “Armistice Day” and intended to honor the end of WWI the year before, November 11 has evolved over the years to become the Veterans Day we celebrate now.
At Ron & Alicia Robinson Florist, we want to put the emphasis on “celebrate.” Veterans Day isn’t a somber occasion; instead, it’s poignant and proud. We put on parades and parties, or have observances and salutes that feel more triumphant and inspiring rather than subdued. And we believe that the flowers we give as gifts to our favorite vets should keep the same spirit.
