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.
"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.”
The prayer on the Square will be held on Monday, November 24th, from 12:00-1:00pm. A special address will be brought by Sid Dye, followed by a special prayer and blessing for our service men and women. “We are working on having some youth presenters for songs/readings/etc,” said Morehous, “Our Youth are such a vital part of the community, and I look forward to having them participate in our service to empower them!”
“I hope to see the entire community out to pray for the safety of our soldiers,” says Morehous. “We have such a wonderful sense of unity here in Washington County, and pulling together to show our support is something I look forward to being a part of on Monday.”
