Hometown Hero Day

The seventh annual Hometown Hero day is being planned for Memorial Day Weekend Saturday May 24. Last year's event drew a great crowd and everyone enjoyed the fellowship and fun along with the celebration of all our heroes. There were serious moments too as we remembered the sacrifices that have given our great country the freedom and prosperity we enjoy. This year we hope to have everyone that can to bring photographs, memorabilia, letters, news and magazine articles for all to enjoy. Parade participants should make signs for their hero's vehicles and decorate with flags if possible. Also, please bring a table for your display and chairs if you have them or you may attach photo copies (not originals) to the "hero wall." We will provide the tables that we have to display photos in frames.

Who is your hero? Someone who saved your house? Your child? Someone who gave you something when you needed it? They may have assisted you when you were in an accident or restored your electricity during a winter storm. They are all around our town and country and even the nation and the world. The Hometown Hero Day is being planned to celebrate all of our "heroes." The displays will include volunteer and paid active military and veterans, police, fire, medical, rescue, wrecker operators, linemen, hospice and so on. The list could be endless, it may be a good neighbor, a preacher or a special nurse, maybe an author or speaker who changed your life. If you would like to share your hero please bring items to the town square for display.
