A Celebration of Armed Forces Day 2016

Sunday, May 1st, 2016 | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Community Church at Tellico Village (CCTV) is inviting the public to share in its celebration of Armed Forces Day 2016 on Saturday, May 21, from 1 to 4 p.m. The celebration will kick off at 1:00 with exhibits of military memorabilia and refreshments. Ed Navarro, Department of Veteran’s Affairs liaison officer, and representatives of the newly chartered VFW post 12135 (Tellico Village) will also be on hand to offer information and assistance.

The official program will begin at 2:00 with the posting of colors by the Loudon County Honor Guard, followed by tributes, patriotic music, and a salute to each branch of our armed services. The keynote speaker will be Tennessee Aviation Hall of Famer and USAF (Ret) General Fred Womack. The program will conclude with a recessional to the church’s memorial garden for a benediction, rifle volley, TAPS, and trailing musical tribute by bagpiper Mark Warren.

“We hope the community-at-large will participate in this opportunity to honor and thank the men and women who wear – or have worn – the uniform of service in support of our great nation,” said event co-coordinator Carolyn McDermott.
