By The Staff


I want to thank everyone who has helped me flag veterans graves on the Sunday before Memorial Day.  Each year American Legion Post 41 sponsors this program and has for a long time. This is done with many dedicated volunteers who show up each year without being asked. They just know it happens.

I have taken care of this for Legion Post 41 for about 15 years and have enjoyed each year.

A special thanks goes to Sandy Kindoll, Pat Beggs and Anna J. Scudder for keeping track of the veterans that get buried in the Carrollton I.O.O.F. cemetery and help me locate them each year. The sextons at the other cemeteries also have helped. A special thanks goes to the ladies auxiliary who prepare breakfast at the Legion Hall for all the volunteers who help in any way.

Time has come for me to pass this job to Doug Ramsey who has agreed to carry on this tradition. Thank you Doug.
