Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society presents "A Tribute To Our Military"

November 1st at 11:00 a.m. all are welcome when the Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society presents "A Tribute To Our Military" honoring veterans and those currently serving in our Armed Forces.

The ceremony will be held at the Veterans Memorial Park next to the Historical Society, 123 W. George St., Arcanum.

We invite veterans, those currently serving, their family and friends to attend.

Over 180 flags will fly in honor of those whose names have been submitted for this event. Following the ceremony, including the laying of a wreath at the Veterans Memorial, you are encouraged to view the flags of all those being honored, to reflect on their valor.

Please join us for a reception in the Historical Society. View the "Missing Man Table" and other military memorabilia displays. Many photos of our service men and women will be displayed as well. If you have a photo you would like to share please bring it with you.

The "Missing Man Table" has symbolic items placed to remind us of their duty to our country and the love of family and friends awaiting their return. It is a somber reminder of all those who left but did not return.

Flags will be displayed until after Veterans Day Nov. 11th. On Nov. 12th & 13th those who submitted names may take the flags with their honoree's name attached.

They hope you take this time to honor our military men and women. Everyone is welcome to the ceremony and the reception which follows.

Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society is dedicated to collecting artifacts and memorabilia of Southern Darke County, recording the history of its people and events.
