Nearly 400 local veterans and their guests attended Midlothian’s 13th Annual Tribute Dinner, held last Friday at the Midlothian Conference Center. A reverent ceremony recognized all branches of the U.S. military, prisoners of war, those missing in action, Purple Heart and Congressional Medal of Honor awardees.
Volunteers from the Midlothian and Heritage High School FFA chapters served the traditional barbecue meal. Assistance was also provided by the Midlothian High School Royals and the Legacy DeMolay chapter.
The event was made possible by sponsors, Ash Grove Cement, Aquamatrix, Burton Roofing, Heroes of Midlothian Foundation, Midlothian Community Development Corporation (MCDC), and NEMA 3 Electric.
