SMITHFIELD – With the threat of severe weather expected Friday, Nov. 11 throughout Central North Carolina from Tropical Storm Nicole, the Town of Smithfield has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Veterans Day Celebration.
“While Mother Nature is pushing us to cancel this year’s events, it does not detract from our admiration and the sincere “thank you” message that we want to send to our Veterans,” said Town Manager Michael Scott. “Our men and women in uniform are on the ground floor and on the front lines, securing our nation and our way of life, while risking their own in the process. We pray for them and we thank them for their service and dedication to freedom.”
The Town is already in the planning stages for the 2023 Veterans Day Celebration and is looking forward to once again honoring our Veterans.
