Anderson County’s Ninth Annual Memorial Day ceremony starts at 10 a.m. Monday, May 29.
The event will be held rain or shine, said Leon Jaquet, director of the Anderson County Veterans Service Office.
There will be speeches from Anderson County Mayor Terry Frank, retired U.S. Army Major Jason Deel, and Clinton City Council member Zach Farrar, Jaquet said.
“The program will include a 21-gun salute and wreath laying at the Veterans Memorial at the Anderson County Courthouse to pay tribute to the men and women of the U.S. military who have given their lives to protect the freedoms we all enjoy every day,” Jaquet said. “The day itself is sacred, and veterans need no reminder of the reason for it. But what about the general public, and more importantly, the next generations? Everyone is invited to attend and show their support of our military past, present, and future.
“Thank you for your support of the county’s veterans and the Anderson County Veterans Service Office.”
