Columbia Countys Red, White and Blue Veterans Celebration, scheduled for 7 p.m. in Evans, has been cancelled due to weather.
The outdoor event will not be rescheduled.
Somehow I picture an old guy with a VFW cap and flag waiting in the rain and no one shows up.
So true, RM. Did you notice the event was scheduled for 7 pm and the Chronicle's post was made at 8:51?
Well, part of that could be the fact that people would like to know that the event will not be rescheduled. That was the first question I had. It sucks it wont be rescheduled because all this rain, we need it but not every sinlge day for 2 weeks!!! lol
Not sure why it couldn't be rescheduled. Apparently poor planning if they didn't have a Plan B in the first place.
THAT disgusts me!!!!!!!!!!!
As usual, Commissioners take veteran's money and enjoyed the fruits of their hard labor (wars, etc) but treat them poorly and so very unappreciated.
Well, ALL you vets out there. I THANK YOU and MY FAMILY THANKS YOU for ALL you personally have done for the USA and for us, individually. Because of you all, we still have our freedom. Know you are appreciated by many.
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!! HAVE a happy MEMORIAL DAY!!!
That is a darn shame! The county could have made emergency alternate plans. With all the "weather advisories" that the county receives, it very well could have had a plan B in place. Any outdoor activity that is WORTH the trouble to go through could have received INDOOR accomodations. A parade type situation may not have been a viable option due to "weather", but you know what.. ALL veterans and those that would come out to salute them would have stood out in minor winds and rain drops to offer their THANKS and appreciations....
JUST ANOTHER SLAP IN THE FACE TO THE VETERANS OF ALL AGES in the good ol' U.S. of A??
SHAMEFUL COLUMBIA COUNTY!!!!!!
