In keeping with the longstanding tradition, Veteran's Day is being observed today, Wednesday, Nov. 11. The annual wreath ceremony is set for 11 a.m. at the east entrance of the Clay County courthouse in Piggott, hosted by the local VFW, American Legion and their auxiliaries.
Due to the holiday the courthouse, local city halls, government agencies, post offices and financial institutions are closed today in observance.
All of us at the CCTD, and Rust Communications, offer our sincere thanks to all of those who have served and all those currently in service to our country.
Our offices in Piggott and Rector are open today as usual, and this week's edition will be available to our readers around mid-day.
