Highland Salutes Veterans at 7th Annual Flag Day

kimatv.com

On Thursday, June 14th, at noon in the Tieton City Square, 607 Maple Street, Tieton, WA, the 7th Annual Flag Day Celebration for the Highland community will be held. This event honors the men and women of the communities of Naches Heights, Cowiche and Tieton who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces.  Although the event serves to honor all area veterans, each year a number of veterans are selected for special recognition of their service.  Special presentations will be made to this year’s honorees:  John Mettie, Gene Knutson, and Dick Barr.  All area veterans are invited and encouraged to attend.

Highlighting the event each year is the “Reading of the Names.”  The names of all those who have served in the military are read during the program to honor their service to our country.  More than 575 names will be read at this year’s event.  Another crowd favorite is the Posting of the Colors, the Rifle Salute, and the playing of “Taps,” all of which will be provided by the VFW Post #379.  Scout Troop 263 participates in the event yearly, and this year will be no exception.  Various military equipment, ranging from WWII jeeps to current day trucks and Humvees, will be on display during the event.

This is a free event and the general public is encouraged to attend. A buffet immediately following the event is available at Vickie’s Café at a cost of $8.00.

The event founder/organizer is Norma Joiner.   She can be contacted at (509) 673-2055 for more information.
