Veterans Are Our Heroes
“Veterans Are Our Heroes”…That’s the theme for the Oxford Public Library Veterans Celebration. The event recognized all veterans of the armed services, including those who have passed away and those that remain with us today. Oxford Public Library Director Amy Henderson says the idea for the program started during the library’s Summer reading program where the focus was on superheroes. Today’s event celebrates the heroes who don’t wear capes. And those people are our local veterans…
Local veteran activist and TV24 personality Ken Rollins spoke at the event, ALACARE held a special program for their veterans, and a special discussion on America’s White Table-which acknowledges our fallen veterans- was also held. Henderson says this celebration will become an annual event.
