UNIFORM SERVICES APPRECIATION: 12 to 9 pm (at Canal Market District)

Our lives have all been touched by those in uniform, but we are rarely given the opportunity to properly thank them. We are out to change that. 

The Licking County Governmental Preservation Society (LCGPS) is a non-profit organization charged with the preservation, restoration, and utilization of historically important Licking County Government buildings. The society's vision is to present citizens of Licking County and beyond with an accurate view of the county's past, while allowing the present day utilization by the community that will provide ongoing funding sources to sustain historically important Licking County government buildings in the future.

This is the organization's mission and we cannot present the citizens of Licking County with an accurate account of the past without acknowledging those that fought or continue to fight for our nation. 

Please join us as we dedicate a day to honoring those in uniform.
