This display of flags was very moving and is another reminder of how thankful I am to all of the men and women who have fought and are still fighting to keep our country free.

Each flag was tied with a yellow ribbon and has a name on it.

Last weekend the Big Brothers Big Sisters Youth Mentoring Organization held a Truck Pull Fundraiser. Teams of 12 pulled an 18-wheeler 75 feet.

Prizes were given to the team that raised the most money and the team that crossed the finish line with the best time.
