“Salute to Holt County Veterans” will pay homage to Holt County
veterans of World War I, with special focus on Company L, a unit
comprised almost entirely of Holt County men. This program will provide
historical information about the part that Holt County men and women
have played in war and peace-keeping efforts on the part of the State of
Missouri and the United States as a whole.
The program, which is endorsed by the Missouri State Bicentennial
Committee and State Historical Society of Missouri, is open to the public
and will be presented immediately following the Holt County Missouri
Historical Society’s annual meeting, held Sunday, November 3, at 2 pm,
at the Holt County Courthouse in Oregon, Missouri. Anyone who has
World War I memorabilia is encouraged to bring it to display. There is no charge for this program, but donations will be gratefully accepted; donations received will be used to help purchase a case to display the Bicentennial quilt in the Court House and fund future Bicentennial events.
