|City of Prattville Will Honor Veterans on November 12th|
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"World War I officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919 in France at Versailles in the Hall of Mirrors. Fighting had ceased seven months earlier when an armistice between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month," stated Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. "For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of 'the war to end all wars.' It is my express honor to join these distinguished veterans on the occasion of this anniversary to acknowledge all veterans' honor, service, and supreme sacrifice in keeping this nation free and securing for us the freedoms we enjoy today."
Mayor Gillespie extends an invitation to all residents to join him at this event.
City offices will be closed on Monday, November 12th. No garbage or trash will be collected on this day. Monday and Tuesday routes will be collected on Tuesday, November 13th.
