Cumming Readies for Freedom Rally

This year’s rally will honor military service men and women who actively defended the freedoms of many.

A Veteran's Day Freedom Rally Event organized by the Forsyth County Tea Party Patriot Alliance will be held Sunday, Nov. 11, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Central Park Recreation Center located at 2300 Keith Bridge Road, off Georgia 400 (Exit 17).

This year’s rally will honor military service men and women who actively defended the freedoms of many, and is led by event organizer Trilby Leech, a citizen activist who supports our Service men and women in Forsyth County.

Veterans Day annually falls on Nov. 11 and is the anniversary of the signing of the World War I armistice ending hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. However Veterans Day now honors all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans.

Typically Veteran’s Day is marked by parades and church services and in many places the American flag is hung at half mast with a period of silence lasting two minutes which may be held at 11 a.m. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Wounded Warriors can do so at this year’s Central Park event.

The following is the agenda for Sunday's rally:
