The lineup at the TrustBank parking lot begins at 10:20 with the Parade to start at 10:40, making its way along Main Street to the Richland County Courthouse Lawn, where the Veterans Day Program will begin at 11:00. Everyone is strongly encouraged to attend the Veterans Day Parade and Courthouse Lawn Program this morning in Olney, plus there are several other observances and displays available on this Monday throughout the area and region. Plus the public is also encouraged to take time to stop by the Olney VFW today to view the incredible military exhibit now on display. It’s all to honor our local Veterans in recognition of their service to America.
(NEWTON) A huge “thank you” goes out to all those who braved the cool weather to attend this past Saturday morning’s Veterans Day program held on the Jasper County Courthouse Lawn in Newton. With Congressman John Shimkus on hand as the guest speaker, there were many others who also took part in the annual event. There are several area Veterans Day programs scheduled for today throughout the region.
(OLNEY/NEWTON) A reminder that most all area City and Village Halls are closed today in observance of Veterans Day 2018. Republic Services will not observe the Veterans Day holiday, therefore Republic’s trash collections will run all of this week in the Olney, Noble, Newton, and surrounding areas at normal times and locations as usual. In Olney, the curbside recycling pick up will be on its normal schedule and Olney’s brush dump on West Mack Avenue will be closed today, but open later this week, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, each day from 10:00 to 4:00.
