May 3 was the National Day of Prayer, and Woodville observed the day Thursday morning on the courthouse lawn. Drummer Conner Hughes and Fife player Logan Primrose from St. Paul's School led off the ceremony, followed by a performance of "The Star Spangled Banner" by Joan Estes. Tyler County Judge Jacques Blanchette did the welcome and introduced the speakers.
The theme of this year's observance was Our Christian Forefathers, with area men speaking for numerous American dignitaries from the past.
The Tyler County Booster presents the entire ceremony in the video below.
