The Salvation Army in Chillicothe is celebrating it’s 125th anniversary this year. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross talk to Mayor Chuck Haney:
Haney said this is an accomplishment that should not pass without pause. “Events that happen when you’re 75, 100, or 125 years old as a business, corporation, service agency or as an organization like the Salvation Army is a real big deal,” said Haney,” They’re a great asset to our community.”
The mayor will be at the event to honor the organization and its members. “I will present a proclamation to the Salvation Army on Tuesday,” said Haney,” I hope that people can come out. I believe a lot of us think of the Salvation Army only at Christmas time when they’re ringing the bells, but they do so much more than the kettles in service to a community.”
The ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. at the offices located on West Mohawk Road. Refreshments will be served and tours of the facility will be given.
