In recognition of their selfless acts of heroism, dedication, and sacrifice to the safety, health and well being of our nation, Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. has declared November 11th-17th to be Military Appreciation Week in Prattville.
On Wednesday, November 14th, a contingent of elected and military officials will travel to each community within the River Region so that each mayor can participate in signing the joint proclamation honoring our military during this special week.
The Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce and its Military Committee are supporting a variety of events and area merchants are offering specials and discounts. A list of events and specific merchant discounts are available on their website, www.prattvillechamber.com.
"We are very blessed to have so many military members as residents in the City of Prattville," said Mayor Bill Gillespie. "These military service men and women are much more than protectors of our freedoms. They contribute significantly to our quality of life and the economic health of our community. It is my honor to join my peers in honoring our local active duty military members, retirees, reserve forces, National Guard forces, and their families, not only during this week, but every day of the year."
The City of Prattville will hang a banner in front of City Hall in honor of this event and we encourage all residents of Prattville to join us in thanking our military for their service and contribution in our lives and community.
