Watts: Community Covenant reminds us ‘how important this country is’

Mayors from throughout Cache Valley will gather in a show of support for military service members and their families during July 1st activities in Utah State University’s Romney Stadium. Tuesday night Logan Mayor Randy Watts told the municipal council that as part of the patriotic program local representatives will pledge to support military families and personnel through the Community Covenant Program.”We are hoping to put 15-16,000 people (in the stadium) and I know the price has increased a little,” Watts said, “but we’ve got Diamond Rio, which is a really, really good group, and Craig Jessop bringing his singing group and there will be dancing and this covenant will be presented. “All the mayors will come out so it should be a fun-packed evening to remind all of us how important this country is and that signing of that declaration.” The initiative, created in 2008 by the United States Army, is designed to reach out to all military service members. Watts says signing the covenant will give the service men and women more security. They will know their families back home will be taken care of.
