July 4th 2017 Veterans Remembrance Ceremony scheduled

The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and the Pulaski County Courthouses Exhibits Committee will again this year be honoring all veterans and members of our armed forces with a July 4th Veterans Remembrance Ceremony beginning at 12 noon in the Pulaski Theatre.

Several organizations will be participating in the ceremony including VFW Post 1184, American Legion Post 7, AMVETS and Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

In addition, the Wilderness Road Chorus will be singing patriotic songs with Boy Scout Troop 48 and Girl Scout
Troop 1247 also participating in the ceremony.

The guest speaker will be Dennis Kitts, retired manager of Training and Development for BAE
Systems at Radford Army Ammunition Plant. Kitts retired last year after enjoying a career at the Arsenal spanning almost three decades of perfect attendance.

The topic of his presentation will be on the history of Radford Arsenal, the Dublin Bagging Plant (New River Ordnance) and Staff Village in Dublin.

After Mr. Kitts’ presentation, the ceremony will conclude with a 21 gun salute and the playing of Taps on the lawn of the Old Pulaski County Courthouse at the War Memorial followed by refreshments in the New River Room of the Old Courthouse.

Tours of the Old Courthouse will also be offered by members of the Courthouses Exhibits Committee.

Citizens are invited to attend and express their support and thanks to all of our county veterans and members of the armed forces for their service and sacrifices.
