On Wednesday, November 11, 2020, under the direction of Joe Worrell, the city hosted a program honoring the veterans of Simpson County at the Civic Center.
Mayor Dale Berry welcomed those in attendance. Former Mayor Jimmy Clyde gave the opening prayer. Joe Worrell led in the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem.
Following Representative Price Wallace’s speech, the Armed Forces Medley was played. As the song from each branch of the service was played, veterans stood honoring their division.
Joe Worrell, assisted by Jimmy Clyde, began the drawing for the door prizes. (Probably one of the favorite parts!). Each of the thirty-six veterans present received a prize.
Following the closing prayer by former Mayor Jimmy Clyde, the meal was served. A special thank you to Joe Worrell for an excellent event.
