2-day event to honor veterans planned for early November in Jackson


JACKSON, Tenn. — Local veterans already have a plan in place for Jackson’s Veterans Day celebration in November. This year, the celebration will be a two-day event.

At 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, there will be a program honoring vets of all branches and all wars at Englewood Baptist Church in Jackson.

Then on Saturday there will be the parade and celebration through downtown Jackson.

“It’s just a day to celebrate, unite, to assist and have fun,” committee chairman Robert Jones said.

“We just encourage everyone to come out, and if they are not a veteran, to come out and honor the veterans,” said Jackie Utley, program director of the Friday event.

Both events are free and open to the public.
