Hickory – In honor of veterans, the Catawba County Democratic Party will hold a Memorial Day Pizza Party on Tues., May 28th, 7-8pm at their headquarters at 1612 Tate Blvd SE, Hickory. Area veterans and Democrats are invited to attend the event, where free pizza and drinks will be served.

Dr. Ric Vandett, CCDP Chairman and a Vietnam Veteran himself, will speak briefly to the importance of the holiday. “Taking pause to honor those who have served and died in the Armed Forces is so essential,” said Vandett, who also is an active member of Veterans Helping Veterans based in Hickory.
