Oct 2 – Welcome Home Event for Troops and Families in Holly

Welcome Our Troops Home Event October 2nd, 2021

The Village of Holly and the Holly Area Veterans Resource Center are planning a Welcome Home event for our troops and their families.

Sometimes coming back from serving in engaged conflict as a military veteran can be difficult. It helps to know that your community is behind you and cares that you are back home. Holly is a place that is very in tune with their veterans and knows that firsthand. We want to help with the transition. That is exactly what the Welcome Our Troops Home event is all about.

On October 2, 2021 from 12-4pm in the Historic Battle Alley Social District in Downtown Holly the community is inviting veterans and their families to be welcomed, honored, and celebrated. The plans are to start the event with a parade kicking off at noon from the Karl Richter Campus to the Downtown District. Other events that day will include a 50th Vietnam Commemorative Pinning, food trucks, and live music.

The Welcome Program begins at 1:30pm.  The Pinning will began at 3pm in the Moose Lodge on Broad Street.  Any veteran who served from 1955 – 1975 will be presented with a pin.  Any widow of a veteran during the time frame will be presented with a special pin.

To learn more about the event please contact Joe Mishler at 810.348.9960, jmm1967@comcast.net or Jeremy Watson at 810.875.0236 or jwatson@hollyvillage.org.
