For the twenty-ninth year, Newnan’s American Legion Post 57 will sponsor the November 11 ceremonies in Veterans’ Memorial Plaza. As it has since 2004, the program will honor a Veteran of the Year for Newnan/Coweta, recognizing one individual who served his nation in uniform and came home to better his community, state and nation. The honoree will be announced in the Times-Herald on November 10. In addition, Robin Tornow and Harold Barron, who were instrumental in the construction of Veterans’ Memorial Plaza, will be remembered as a part of the program. The program will begin at 11:00 and will be followed by the traditional community luncheon at the Coweta Veterans’ Club, from noon till 2:30 PM. The Atkinson Elementary Chorus will again perform inspirational music that will be as big a crowd pleaser as was their routine for 2009. Commander Ronald Freese, directing his first Veterans’ Day program, issued a special invitation to our newest veterans from the Gulf War and the War
