Deadline approaching for veterans photos

by | Oct 19, 2017 | Latest

The Farmersville Times is now accepting photos for our Veterans’ Day section. Send photos to [email protected] and include name, date of service and branch of service. If you have submitted photos in previous years, the photos will be published again this year.

Each year, thousands of veterans are honored with an annual celebration called Veterans’ Day on Nov. 11.

This year, The Farmersville Times, would like to pay special tribute to those veterans and active duty personnel in a special section publishing Nov. 9.

However, we need your help.

If you have a veteran or active duty military personnel that you want to honor for Veterans’ Day please send us their photo, along with name, branch of service and years served for inclusion in the section. Deadline for photos is Oct. 27.

Email photos and information to [email protected] or bring it by the newspaper office at 101 S. Main St. in downtown Farmersville. Any size photo is acceptable and photos may be picked up a week after the section publishes.

All branches of service are included as well as all wars and conflicts. Photos from multiple family members that have served are allowed and encouraged.

If your photo has been published in the past editions, it will once again be included as part of the section. For more information call 972-784-6397 ext. 30.
