It is never too late to honor Veterans. It is something that we can do all year long, actually.
Autauga County Officials had originally planned to have a Veterans Day Drive Through Exhibit on Veterans Day, but the event rolled on Thursday after inclement weather was predicted for Tuesday.
The delay didn’t dampen the spirits of the lovely ladies assisting with greeting all who came to visit. Each visitor was given a treat and a piece of artwork handmade by local students. Area pageant Queens were there to wave flags, greet visitors and hand out the treats. Those participating were Kaylee McDonald, Mia Flynn, Emma Holloman, Anna Kate McDonald, Maddy McDonald and Mikella Anderson.
The setting was at the Autauga County Probate Office parking lot. Those who came could drive around back to enjoy a Veterans Day Wall created by local students from Prattville Christian Academy, Prattville First Baptist Church Preschool/Kindergarten and CJ’s Dance Factory.
A similar wall was put up last year inside the Probate Office. With COVID-19, the event was moved outdoors.
Helping to organize this event was Kim Kervin, Judge of Probate; Deb Hill, Circuit Clerk; Kathy Evans, Revenue Commissioner, Joy Booth, District Court Judge and Autauga County Sheriff Joe Sedinger.
Thank you everyone for organizing this event, and to the Veterans! See more photos below!
