Photos needed for upcoming patriotic celebration


Tallassee’s 5th Annual Patriotic Celebration will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, at the Mount Vernon Theatre.  This has proven to be an extremely popular evening of songs and words of tribute.  

More details will be coming in the next couple of weeks, but right now we are asking for pictures. One of the highlights of the event is always a slide-show presentation of pictures of local men and women in uniform: those who are serving now, and all who have served before.

Service is not restricted to wartime; all who have worn the uniform should be honored.

If you are a veteran, or know of one, please provide a picture so it may be included in the presentation.
Include the name of the veteran, highest rank/grade, service component, and years of service.

Pictures may be dropped off at WACQ radio station (in an envelope, with name and ‘phone number). Or, digital/scanned, they may be emailed to

Please help make sure all who deserve recognition are included. Pictures need to be received by Friday, June 14.
