Home Town Award
Congratulations to all of those who were involved in last year's celebration of the 150th anniversary of the historic Lincoln-Douglas debate in Jonesboro.
Many, many hours of volunteer service went into preparing for the 2008 celebration.
That hard work paid off last week when Union County received a Governor's Home Town Award. The award was presented in recognition of the successful Lincoln-Douglas celebration.
We congratulate all of those who were involved in last year's sesquicentennial celebration. Your hard work paid off in a very big way.
<strong>Honoring our veterans</strong>
Union County will join the rest of the country next week in honoring America's veterans. Veterans' Day is Wednesday, Nov. 11.
Please take a moment out of your busy schedule to pause and give thanks to those who have, and are, serving our country and protecting our freedom.
To all of our veterans, we extend our heartfelt thanks.
