I want to thank those who came out today to help pass out flags at the Tallmadge Acme store on “Flag Day". We collected $820.75 in donations and passed out over 700 flags. We had Max Bowers an 89 year young Korean War Silver Star recipient helping us today. He said to tell everyone he had a great time and enjoyed the day.
Charlie is one of our members..... a great inspiration to all veterans ...
