Memorial Day program Sunday in Moreland

by W. Winston Skinner

The Moreland Community Historical Society will also be sponsoring its annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Sunday.

The program will start at 2 p.m. and will be held in the large meeting room at the Moreland Mill.

“We hope the community will come out and help us remember and honor the brave men and woman who have served to protect our nation,” said Josh Evans, MCHS president.

Brigadier General Don Harvel will be speaking.

“The Newnan High School Air Force ROTC will be posting and retiring the colors. Rev. Frank Powers will be there to lead us in an opening prayer,” Evans said.

Refreshments will be served afterwards. “The society will have a table setup to display any military memorabilia that individuals would like to bring and share with those attending,” Evans said.
