The Newville Joint Veterans Council will conduct the annual Veterans Christmas Service on Saturday, December 21, 2013 at the fountain beginning at 1:00PM. Participants will place black, yellow, red, white and blue ribbons on the Christmas tree to honor all veterans. Veterans, their family members and friends will have an opportunity to place a ribbon on the tree.
Following the Veterans Observance, the Failor-Wagner American Legion Post 421 will hold their annual Christmas raffle drawing. Everyone is welcome!
Christmas is a time for giving and receiving. The Newville Joint Veterans Council requests that everyone bring a non-perishable item to donate to Project Share.
In the event of inclement weather, the Veteran’s Service will be cancelled, and the Christmas give-away will be held at the Big Spring Event and Activity Center on 2 Chestnut Street at 1:00PM.
