Program: Letters from Home Vietnam Show: We Gotta Get Out of This Place
The public is invited. We encourage all Veterans in the area to attend. Please arrive early if you want to eat and sit inside the building. Seating is limited and this event is first come, first serve. There will be additional seating with large screen viewing outside the Community Building for those arriving after inside seating is full.
As we celebrate Independence Day, let us not forget our nation’s independence is not a given nor does it come without a cost. We ask that our brave men and women in our armed services protect and defend our nation’s freedom every day. Some pay the ultimate cost and have given their lives. All have given at some cost.
We honor and celebrate the contributions of those that have served our Nation through a Veteran’s Recognition Ceremony. The Ceremony will include displays, entertainment, food and a keynote speaker. Each year the Festival Committee will choose a specific military branch, conflict or war to highlight, but make no mistake, all Veteran’s and Active Military are welcome and honored.
Held at the Southport Community Building annually during the festival, this event gives Veterans a chance to visit, laugh, and remember with other Veterans. We invite anyone who is a Veteran or Active Military, relative of a Veteran or Active Military or those individuals who just want to show their appreciation to attend. Sponsored by Carillon Assisted Living of Southport, and River Road Animal Hospital.
