The Historical Society will join with members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Wiggins Battery in the annual observance of Confederate Memorial Day on Saturday, April 29.
The event begins at 10 a.m. in the Mountain Home Cemetery where a wreath will be placed at the grave of one of the Confederate veterans interred there, and a biography of that veteran's service will be presented.
After that the event will move to the Courthouse lawn at 11:00 a.m. for a brief ceremony. Finally, at 11:30 a.m. members of the participating groups will move into the courtroom in the courthouse for a potluck dinner and time of visiting.
You may attend all parts of the event, or if you prefer, you may just join us for the dinner fellowship. Please bring a food item to share at the meal.
