'Patriotic Celebration' on Thursday
Tallassee's annual Patriotic Celebration will be on Thursday, June 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Tallassee High School Auditorium.
"As in years past, this will be an inspirational and uplifting evening, celebrating our nation and those who have served in order to keep its freedoms intact," said event organizer James Bush.
Bush, along with Bill Patterson and Joel Burdette have put together the program which will include music, videos and pictorial displays. This year, a special recognition of World War II veterans will be observed.
WWII vets are encouraged to attend and contact Bush (334-799-3414) or Patterson at (334-799-7723), so that preparations may be made. All who served in the armed forces are asked to provide photographs, preferably in uniform, for a presentation during the program. Photos may be dropped off at WACQ.
The event is open to all in the community and free of charge.
"The public is encouraged to come out, celebrate our nation's heritage, and honor those who are serving, and those who have gone before, so that we may enjoy the freedoms we so often take for granted," Bush added.
