Bagdad days to celebrate heroes

-A A +A

To the editor:
I am writing to inform the public of a community event that will honor Kentucky’s military heroes.
On May 12, Bagdad Days, a community event sponsored by Bagdad Baptist Church, will be celebrating 20 years.  As part of this celebration, the community will pay special honor to those Kentucky individuals who have served in military combat for our country.
The Bagdad Days parade at 10 a.m. will showcase all active and veteran military personnel from World War II, Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam War, Iran-Iraq War, Gulf War and War on Terror.
We invite all Kentucky past and present combat military individuals to this event to be recognized as a hero.   
If you are interested in being a part of the Bagdad Days parade, please contact me at 502-633-9444.
In addition to the military recognition several other activities are planned, including a community quilt show starting at 9 a.m.
If you have a personal quilt or quilt made by a deceased relative with connection to the Bagdad community and would like to display it, please contact Kathy Marion at 502-220-3999.
We look forward to celebrating 20 years of Bagdad Days with the community.
