Calling All Veterans !!!

Calling all veterans!  If you are a veteran and will be in Red Bay from mid-October until early November, we would love to invite you to participate in our local Veterans Day activities.  Over six days during this period, the local American Legion post will host veteran lead activities for area schools.  During these six days over 1200 students and teachers will attend a Veterans program at Cypress Cove Farm, home of Alabama Representative Johnny Mack Morrow.

Students first attend a general assembly where they are welcomed by Representative Morrow.  They then break into smaller groups and travel through 6 stations where a veteran will address the small group.  The veteran can talk about his or her experiences, discuss respect for the flag, the correct way to thank a veteran, travel experiences, why they joined the military, etc.  Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes.  We have a dedicated group of veterans in the Red Bay area that participate in this program annually.  However, the American Legion is anxious to also include other veterans!  We are honored to salute our many Tiffin owners who have served our nation.  If your travel plans bring you to Red Bay during this time, you are invited to participate in this wonderful program.  Call the Tiffin Allegro Club at 256-356-8522 for more details!  Spouses & guests are welcome also.

In addition to the programs held at Cypress Cove Farm, the students and faculty of Red Bay High School honors all veterans with a luncheon and program at the high school gymnasium on November 9th.  The flags of each branch of the service and the United States flag will be presented.  Students sing songs or present a patriotic skit and the Red Bay Tiger Band will play.  If you will be in Red Bay on November 9th, let us know at the club office and we will submit your name to the school personnel that organizes this program.   Again, spouses & guests are welcome.

We are honored to have so many veterans as members of our Tiffin family.  Thank you for your service!  God bless you!
