A Call To All Veterans: Fort Thomas Wants To Honor You

Sean Donelan, of Fort Thomas, is looking for veterans. Any and all to participate in activities for the city's Sesquicentennial celebration.

"Retired, active-duty, reserve, guard. Basically anyone who has worn the uniform," he said.

During the Fort Thomas 150 year celebration, there will be a number of ways he said the city is going to honor area military.

He's helping to organize a contingent to walk in the parade, as well as inviting them to be the first to see the new Charters of Freedom monument in Tower Park.

He has also worked with the city to get a street renamed. The street running to the Fort Thomas Museum and Amphitheater will now be known, officially, as Veterans Way.

But first, he needs veterans to join him.

Need a website? Here's the best firm to build it in NKY. This is an advertisement. 
If you'd like to participate in the Fourth of July parade, meet at Highland High School, by the gym, at 10:00 a.m. on July 4.

"Snacks and water will also be available and there is a float, for those that need to ride," he said. "Wear a shirt or hat representing your branch of service or conflict(s) you have served in."

Parking will be limited, but he said that if needed, there will be a drop off area/golf cart shuttle from the front end parade barricades to the group's meeting site.

Immediately following the parade, we will end at the Fort Thomas Military Museum. There will be an unveiling of The Charters Of Freedom, including monuments for the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Right, The Constitution and a plaque recognizing the three Medal of Honor recipients from Fort Thomas.
