Event To Be Held To Honor Hancock County Veterans

While the Hancock County Veterans Day Parade won’t be held this year due to the pandemic, there will still be a service held to honor local Veterans.

Bill Johns, president of the Hancock County Veterans Service Commission, says they’ll be holding an event at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon at the Hancock County War Memorial to let Veterans know how much they appreciate their service and sacrifice.



Bill says those who attend the event should wear a mask and practice social distancing.

He says the coronavirus is affecting a lot of Veterans and they wanted to do something to show Veterans that they’re still thinking of them and are here for them.

Veterans Day is Wednesday, November 11th.
