Rep. Vella-Wilkinson to host salute to Our Military Families at City Hall
Rep. Camilla F.J. Vella-Wilkinson is inviting the public to attend A Salute to Our Military Families at Warwick City Hall.
The event will take place at City Hall at 3275 Post Road in Apponaug in the Council chambers on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The event, which is part of Military Family Month, will include a ceremony of the five military service flags permanently installed in the Council chambers followed by a speaking program and a small reception. The event is free and open to the public.
"I'm proud to host this event in honor of all Warwick veterans and their families," said Representative Vella-Wilkinson, a retired naval officer and member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee. "The brave men and women who serve our country could not do it without the love and support of their families, and we owe each of them a great debt of gratitude for the tremendous sacrifices they make"
Military Family Month was established in 1996 by the Armed Services YMCA, with the U.S. Government recognizing the occasion every year since. Each November, the President signs a proclamation declaring November Military Family Month recognizing the daily sacrifices made by military families.
