Hapeville plans a week-long event honoring our veterans and all those with military service. Flags will adorn the outside of the Historic Hapeville Depot from November 7 – 13, 2016. Flags and special displays honoring individual service persons with ties to Hapeville/Tri-Cities will be showcased inside the Depot Museum. At 3pm on Friday afternoon, November 11, the Hapeville Exchange Club will host a reception at the Depot to which local military service personnel and their families, Hapeville residents, and Hapeville Council members will be invited.
The Hapeville Historical Society and the Hapeville Exchange Club is seeking names of military service personnel to be recognized at this 2016 event (and all year long). Military personnel with a tie to Hapeville/Tri-Cities include individuals, who, at any time during their tour of duty, identified their home address as Hapeville/Tri-Cities, or military personnel with family members who previously or currently reside in Hapeville/Tri-Cities.
