We went to the dedication of our new Public Safety Building and it was a happy, community unifying time. From before Don started working for the police department and then retiring, this building has been in the planning stages and construction. A combination of grants and city renewal money paid for it. No taxes on the community. At all. Cool.
Mayor John Lazar says a few words about the history of this building effort.

The VFW and American Legion fund raised for a memorial to be erected to honor each of the armed services. The American Legion Commander is at the podium. The Vice Commander for VFW is at the far right. Unfortunately, I don't know their names.

A fitting end to an uplifting hour.
