Euharlee Valley Historical Society (EVHS) is planning a Veterans Memorial Service at historic Van Wert Church and Cemetery.

The event begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. Soldiers buried in the cemetery will be honored.

The program will also include the life of famous Sam P. Jones who started his preaching career at the church in 1872.

Singing will be featured and EVHS members will sell hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, sweets and drinks. This food sale is a fundraiser and all proceeds go to the upkeep of the building and grounds.

The service is part of the observance of the 150th anniversary of Civil War activity in Polk County.
