Monday May 31, is Memorial Day. As we salute the American Flag, and remember those whose coffins were draped by the flag, let us pay tribute to all veterans who served their country, and defended the rights and privileges which we, the living enjoy.

In a state wide VFW sponsored essay contest about the American Flag, Treva Widness placed 1st for eighth grade and Mary Flora placed second for seventh grade.Congratulations to two future guardians of the liberties of this fine country. We honor two young women who know why we are privileged to live in this town and in the United States of America.
