Shelby County students needed to assist with annual Memorial Day program

Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the Ladies Auxiliary will hold their annual Memorial Day Program on Monday, May 25th at 11 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the First United Methodist Church here in Center. 


As in past years the tradition of reading the names of the 188 Shelby County Veterans killed in action from the Civil War to today's War on Terror will continue.  This year however they’re asking any Shelby County student (public or home schooled) in grades 6 - 12 to assist in the readings. 


If you have a student who would like to participate call post quartermaster Larry Hume at 936-598-2976.


Hume says they see this as a great opportunity for young people to get to know and appreciate the sons that Shelby County has given in the defense of our country.
