Saturday, Sept. 11 is Patriots Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance. This year is a special observance because it is the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

As the world faces perilous times on this Patriots Day, Greenwood Memorial VFW Post 7478 and its VFW Auxiliary will sponsor a different type of observance on Patriots Day. There will be a prayer vigil at the Post home on Mill Street and Governors Avenue in Greenwood from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Anyone can come in, sit down or stand up, and pray for our world and whatever the Lord may lay on our hearts. Come in a prayerful attitude and leave the same way.
