Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor

During the recent Memorial Day weather events, over 30 flag poles used to display Veterans flags on Memorial Day at Oak Hill Cemetery were damaged. Veterans of Foreign War L. A. Wescott Post 2253 is accepting donations to replace/repair these flag poles.

The community will have the opportunity to make a designated donation towards the flag poles to the VFW at the Veterans Affairs booth during the Cherokee County Fair. The VFW wants to continue the tradition of honoring our community Veterans with their flags donated by family members proudly waving on Memorial Day.

Thank you.
