The City of Prattville will join the American Legion Post 122, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1349, in sponsoring a wreath-laying ceremony at the Autauga County Courthouse at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, November 11, 2016 to officially mark Veterans Day.

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month has a significant meaning,” stated Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. “It means little to some, very much to others. The 3 elevens are a mental marker to help us remember November 11, 1918, the end of the war to end all wars. This is a time honored ceremony that other officials will follow just as I have in an effort to remind us of the Armistice of 1918 and the sacrifices paid by our veterans, past and present, to keep this nation free. It is our duty to REMEMBER them.”

Mayor Gillespie extends an invitation to the public to attend this important event.
