NATCHEZ Adams County Christian School will honor veterans and military at its annual Military Appreciation Night Friday at Bobby Marks Stadium.

Veterans from all wars, and current military members, are invited

“Our school is very patriotic, and this gives our students and staff a way to pay tribute to those who have served our country,” headmaster David King said.

Prior to the game, veterans will be honored for their service. In addition, a motorcycle tribute will be given, as well as other patriotic activities. Veterans are invited to a light refreshment reception beginning at 5 p.m. near the stadium.

“We are planning on a special thanks to some of our local World War II veterans,” event coordinator and ACCS instructor Leah Anne Mason said. “This is one of our favorite football events of the year. Our team will be outfitted in special uniforms thanks to the Mississippi Army National Guard.”

Special parking will be reserved for World War II veterans in front of the high school building.
