New flags thank veteran

Editor:

On July 4th there was a flagraising and dedication with no fan fare, mayor or any newspaper there. We did this at Louie's Corner House as a surprise for Buck Malott. He's the owner and has been since Oct. 1976. Buck is a U. S. Air Force veteran and has done lots for the vets and veterans' organizations. He has also raised a lot of money for Tips for Tots. Willy Cupples arranged all of the day's festivities and also got the pole for the flags. Willy and my boyfriend, Irvin B. Small III raised the flags. Irvin and I donated the POW/MIA flag.

We all would like to say thank you to all the friends and family for showing up and showing your support. When you drive by honk your horn and let people know you are supporting our troops and country. Irvin Small III Shelly Swick-Schwarz, Council Member Buckeye Lake
