This is an invitation to everyone in and around the community and surrounding counties to come and celebrate and honor our veterans.

This federal holiday has been observed annually in a ceremony designed to honor the men and women who have died, in all wars, while serving in the United Stated Armed Forces. This is our way as a community to express our love and appreciation for them. The ceremony is dedicated to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives and to whom we will always pay tribute and honor.
