Ceremonies will be held Friday and Saturday. At 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 10, an on-campus observance is planned, led by UND Student Body President Kaelan Reedy, Student Body Vice President Dawson Dutchak and President Andy Armacost. The event will take place near the northeast entrance of the Memorial Union, near the exterior flag poles. All members of the UND and Greater Grand Forks community are invited to attend.
