The Mott Gallery of History and Art, along with North Dakota National Guard 816th Engineering Co. will host a military salute at 9 a.m. Aug. 15 at the gallery in downtown Mott.
The program will include displays, a presentation of the flag, speakers and music, followed by a freewill offering lunch in the park.
All veterans are invited and asked to bring any military memorabilia they would like to add to the gallery’s collection. The items should be tagged with name, address, phone number and military service information and will be collected at a registration set up for that purpose. Veterans interested in adding their military stories to the archives can schedule an interview for a later date.
The public is invited to spend time with the area men and women who have served in the military.
