April has been set as Veterans' Recognition Month in honor of the Newcomerstown Bicentennial Celebration. They will be having special activities for veterans on each Saturday of the month of April.
They do encourage every veteran living in Newcomerstown and the surrounding area to become involved, as this is our tribute to you for your service to this great nation of the United States of America and Newcomerstown.
To be able to do these things that they have planned, they have to know who and how many are going to be involved. They have made a registration sheet that needs to be filled out and sent to the American Legion, P.O. Box 66, Newcomerstown, OH 43832; dropped off at the Newcomerstown News office. Registration forms are available at the News Office, Newcomerstown Public Library, American Legion and Baker's IGA.
The registration sheet must be submitted by March 20 for the dinner and dance. They cannot accept late registrations. There will be a check list of the registrants. The April 5 parade and April 26 patriotic program is open to everyone.
For questions, call Dennis Belle at 498-6575.
