The annual Bladen County Veterans’ Day Ceremony was canceled last year due to the damages sustained at the National Guard Armory in Elizabethtown by Hurricane Florence. However, this year the organizers have planned a great event at a new location.
Memorial tributes will be made honoring two Bladen County Purple Heart Recipients, Mr. Ben Greene and Mr. Joe Nathan Kelly. Captain Tiina Mundy, United States Air Force Veteran, will be the Guest Speaker.
The National Anthem will be performed by Ms. Alexandria Blanks and the Playing of the Taps by Mr. Greg Elkins.
The event will be held Thursday, November 7th at 11:00 a.m. The new location for the event will be the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall located at 800 Broad Street in Elizabethtown.
