SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting Armed Forces Day ceremonies on Saturday.

The event from the chamber’s military and veterans affairs committee begins with a musical prelude at 10 a.m., followed by a 10:30 a.m. gathering on the grounds of the Sioux Falls VA Medical Center. The gathering includes a formal military program, a Sioux Falls Municipal Band concert and a keynote address by retired Lt. Col. Reid Christopherson.

The ceremonies will be moved to the South Dakota Air National Guard in the case of inclement weather.

An Avenue of Flags ceremony will feature men and women from the armed forces presenting American flags. The chamber will also present Stars and Stripes awards to Rob and Gail Dickerson and Vern Eide Motoplex for displaying American flags year-round.
