Veterans honored in rededication ceremony

John and Billie Fulton hosted a veterans rededication ceremony at the Catts-Crawford Cemetery on their farm just outside of Mt. Vernon on Saturday, Oct. 6. About 155 people attended the ceremony, including members of the Sons of the American Revolution, Society of the War of 1812, Daughters of the American Revolution and many others. The ceremony included the signing of the National Anthem, a musket salute, and statements made by speakers dressed in historic military garb. Following the ceremony, guests were invited to the Fultons’ house for lunch and other activities.
