In his investigation of WWI veterans, he found two women WWI veterans that were from Shelby County. Following Mr. Hume's speech, the wreath was placed on the veterans memorial, taps was played, and the meeting dismissed.
As is now customary after the meeting the group had their pictures taken by the local media: Center Broadcasting Company, The Light and Champion, and Shelby County Today were all present. Below is video coverage of the event.
