Rockets to honor military,first-responders

Crittenden County will host Caldwell County on Sept. 11 for a Rocket/Tiger Salute football game, honoring the area’s military personnel and first responders, all of whom will get into the contest free. There will be a hospitality room and tent prior to the game for these individuals beginning at 5:30 p.m. They will be recognized at halftime.

In addition to recognition of military and first responders, Crittenden County schools are holding a contest to collect care items for the Hugs Project of Western Kentucky. The goal is to bring in items, including snacks, personal care items, and games for deployed soldiers. The classrooms collecting the most donations at each school will earn free admission to the Rocket/Tiger Salute game, as well as recognition at the game that evening.

Businesses are also encouraged to participate.
