Maybe because November 11th was on a Sunday? The Monday, November 12, 1928 edition of the Asbury Park Press reported that "Altho yesterday was officially Armistice Day, the ending of the World War 10 years ago will be celebrated today with this city and Red Bank as the centers of the county." In Freehold there was a service in memory of Corporal James A. Gere, the first Soldier from Freehold killed in the war. This was followed by the presentation of a flag pole at the Broad street school by Post 54. In the evening, a dance open to the public was being held at the Legion home.
