Veterans Day Brunch Celebration slated for November 11th

The Jackson Parish Police Jury announces that a Veteran’s Day Brunch Celebration will be held at 10:00am on Friday, November 11th at the Charles H. Garrett Community Center, located at 182 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro. All veterans, family members and friends are invited to attend the event that celebrates the brave men and women from Jackson Parish that have served in the United States Armed Services. 

On May 13, 1938, the 11th of November was made a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.” This was a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954 at the urging of veterans who fought in World War II and Korean along with service organizations, the word “Armistice” was replaced with “Veterans.”
