Veterans honored on square Nov. 11

In honor of the veterans of the U.S. Armed Services, Pike County American Legion Post 197 will present its annual Veterans Day program Monday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. on the courthouse square. ’Everyone is invited and may want to bring a chair or blanket as needed,’ said post commander Bill Payton Sr. The Pike County Sheriff’s Office Honor Guard will present the colors. The National anthem will be performed by Ms. Laura Kilby. The ceremony will be closed with the placing of a new wreath and a roll call of local veterans who have passed away in the past year. ’We are asking for the names of any deceased veterans from family and friends,’ said Payton.
