The annual Caraway Fourth of July festivities serves not only as a celebration of the country's birth, but a homecoming for many that have roots in the Caraway area.
Last year a special recognition of all veterans and those serving in the military was held at the beginning of the day.
"We had quite a few names during the first recognition ceremony last year but we know there are many, many more. We need the names of anyone with ties to Caraway that has served in the military or is presently serving," Cheryl Schoolfield said.
Schoolfield asked that anyone with names to be added to the list call her at (870) 482-3553 or Barbara Weathers at city hall (870) 482-3716.
