The clinking of brass bouncing off the pavement between the blasts of gun powder as a lone voice hollered "fire", helped provide an emotional conclusion to the annual Veterans Day Service at St. Peter Church Thursday morning. It featured members of veterans organizations and the Knights of Columbus providing color and pagentry for the morning's solemn ceremony. Outside, the Honor Guard from the Samuel F. Gearhart Detachment of the Marine Corps League provided the 21 gun salute while Taps was played from a solitary horn in the choir balcony.

The laying of wreaths at the National Cemetery is a month away, but to show their appreciation to veterans, schools across the county handed their donations to local veterans for the Wreaths for Heroes campaign.
