Deadline for Veterans’ Names is Oct. 31

There are just a few days left to get Jeff Davis County Veterans names engraved on the Veterans Park Memorial. The yearly ceremony will take place on Nov. 11th at 11 a.m. The deadline is Oct. 31.
The black granite is being expanded to accommodate more names. The cost is minimal. Forms may be downloaded from the web site or picked up from the Chamber of Commerce and returned to them or mailed. See directions on the form. For questions call president Roy Anderson at 375-5361.
The next and last scheduled meeting of the year is Oct. 31t at the City Municipal Building next to the police station on the Alma Highway. All veterans are encouraged to attend and wear the black vests. Duty assignments will be made for Veterans Day and input is valuable. Plans are being formulated to honor Korean War Era (1950-53) Veterans.
Coming in November is a program “Green Lights for Veterans” sponsored by Walmart, a national program in which folks are asked to show their support for Veterans by installing and turning on a green porch light for the month. More information will be provided next week.
