YMCA Community Prayer for our Soldiers

During the month of November, the Washington County Family YMCA has been leading Washington County in A Salute to our Soldiers campaign to honor our local service members and their families; recognizing the many sacrifices they and their families make to secure the nation’s freedom.

"In November, we all are reminded of the many things we have to be thankful for," says Rosie Morehous, the Youth First Director organizing the event, “Our soldiers, past and present, have done so much to make our blessings possible, and we look forward to honoring that with our Prayer on the Square Meeting.”

The prayer on the Square will be held on Monday, November 25th, from 12:00-1:00pm. Special singing by David Brown, a Special address from Sid Dye, and Prayer led by Bob Holler will outline the service to thank our brave men and women.

“I hope to see the entire community out to pray for the safety of our soldiers,” says Morehous. “We have such a wonderful sense of unity here in Washington County, and pulling together to show our support is something I look forward to being a part of on Monday.”
