Before I start my article, I wanted to tell everyone that we are having an 80th birthday celebration for Dick Scott on October 14,2017 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the TOWNER COMMUNITY HALL. The ad last week said at the American Legion Hall in Eads, but that has been changed to Towner. Please pass the word around to friends about the change in venue. Casual attire and no gifts please.
"Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate What you ought to be, What you can be, What you will be." Douglas MacArthur
