An upcoming area festival will pay tribute to veterans this year. The annual Old Tyme Apple Festival in Versailles is scheduled for October 7, but the community is using the entire first week of October as a chance to honor all veterans, with a focus one one particular group.
That’s Jamie Morrow from the Versailles Area Chamber of Commerce. The traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall will be in town from October 5th through 9th. The public can visit the memorial anytime during that period.
Vietnam Veteran, Purple Heart honoree, and author Tommy Capps will be the grand marshal for the parade. In addition, the Morgan County Museum currently has a free World War I display that will remain in place through the first week of October.
