Leach Chapel CME Church - "It is not Heavy, if we all lift"
VETERANS DAY 2016

On Sunday, November 13, 2016, Leach Chapel celebrated Veterans Day, which was observed November 11, 2016. The service was held to honor the people who have served the United States via the Armed Forces. The Veterans Day Holiday was created to honor the anniversary of the end of World War I, which occurred at 11:00 am on November 11, 1918.   

Leach Chapel celebrates Veterans Day each year as a time to be dedicated to the cause of world peace. We thank all our veterans for serving and giving to make our country free, peaceful and strong.
