Honor our troops at Coshocton County Fairgrounds

| April 1, 2014

DSC_0501COSHOCTON – All county veterans and active military are invited to the annual Relay for Life Armed Forces Walk on Saturday, May 17 at noon at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds.

Relay For Life committee members Chuck Weaver, Clow Veterans Group, and Marge Pizzino, Blue Star Mothers, announced that this year’s walk will be different. Veterans will assemble and wait in a designated area with seats, out of the sun and weather. The opening ceremony will be short and get right to the point, the walk. Participants will walk by military branch to the beat of patriotic music piped throughout the fairgrounds. Walkers will meet back at the stage for a brief closing ceremony including the singing of, ‘God Bless America’.

This walk is to celebrate our military. All county veterans and active military are encouraged to participate. Wheelchairs and assistance will be available to any veteran needing it. Non-veterans are invited to line the track during the walk to show support for what these men and women have done for us and our country.

If you have questions or need assistance to participate, contact Chuck at (302) 299-6383 or Marge at 502-4535.
