During the month of November, the Washington County Family YMCA has been leading Washington County in A Salute to our Soldiers campaign to honor our local service members and their families; recognizing the many sacrifices they and their families make to secure the nation’s freedom. The prayer on the Square was held this afternoon.

Commissioner David Brown led singing, and there was a Special address from Sid Dye, and Prayer led by Bob Holler will outline the service to thank our brave men and women. A group of students came from West Washington High School to support the project.

“In November, we all are reminded of the many things we have to be thankful for,” says Rosie Morehous, the Youth First Director organizing the event, “Our soldiers, past and present, have done so much to make our blessings possible, and we look forward to honoring that with our Prayer on the Square Meeting.”
