New flag retirement pit at Union Cemetery looks great

To the editor:

A community thank-you should be given to all the individuals who participated in getting the new flag-burning pit constructed at Union Cemetery. It looks great.

A special thank-you should be given to Herman Cupples, Ron Bookout and Trevor Annee for all the volunteer hours they put in constructing the pit, and to Bob Howe for his donation of fire bricks and the grating.

I know it took a lot of time and hard work during some very hot weather to get it finished.

Again, a big thank-you to all.
