July 1, 2005

Tifton- The Tifton Welcome Center was packed with military family members and supporters during their Yellow Ribbon Day ceremony.

Billie Ann and Kirby Hall's son in serving in Afghanistan. They and other military family members tied ribbons around a freedom tree in the window at the Tifton Welcome Center.

"It makes us very proud and I'm surprised there are so many people, even people who don't have sons in the military show up to support those who do," says Billie Ann Hall.

City council members also signed a proclamation naming July 4th as Yellow Ribbon Day. Tifton will continue its salute to the armed forces on Monday at 9 PM at the Agrirama.
