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.
