Plenty of hugs, many tears and an abundance of patriotism filled the Barnesville Civic Center last week when 58 World War II veterans and spouses were honored by the Barnesville Rotary Club.
SIDE NOTE: Junior Hamrick, commander of the local VFW Club, reports Veterans Day will be observed in Barnesville on November 12 in that November 11 falls on a Sunday this year. The observance will begin at 11 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial on Thomaston Street at the library. More details to follow...
