Patriots Day to Honor First Responders and Military

A 'Patriots Day' celebration is set for the afternoon of Saturday, July 10, at the Shiloh Life Center in Jasper.

The afternoon of faith, resilience and redemption will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. to honor nurses, doctors, EMTs, firefighters, police officers and military. Inspirational presentations will make you smile, weep and laugh, often all in the same moment.

In the last 18 months, this community and the nation have faced critical turns of events. In addition to experiencing a pandemic and countrywide protests, other localized experiences have left first responders fatigued, both physically and mentally. This planned afternoon of celebration is an opportunity to let them know that the public stands with them and that they are admired, respected and loved. Those gathered will affirm their collective commitment to the patriots who have kept, and are keeping, our cities and nation safe.

Seating will be limited, so free tickets will be required. To obtain one, call 812-777-8689. Shiloh Life Center is at Shiloh Church, 1971 W. State Road 56.
